Geocache Description:

This is a log any where cache. Cache coordinates are for my town.

Camera Obscura. The dictionary defines a camera as an apparatus for taking pictures by means of a lens through which rays of light pass to a sensitive plate inside a light proof box. A camera obscura is the same but there is no sensitive plate. You go inside the Box ( camera) to see the image. ( it Litterly means " Darken Room "

Here it is. You go inside the camera. That’s a Camera Obscura.

Your task is to find one.

At the West end of Hwy 66, where it goes into the Pacific ocean, is the town of Santa Monica, California.
We have and old but quite nice Camera Obscura in the Palisades Park . The above coordinate are to the senior citizens recreation center where the Camera Obscura is located. (Its free if you care to see it.)

How many other Camera Obscuras can be found around the world? That is the challenge of this cache.

To claim this cache you must:

(1) Fine one and take a picture of it with your self and /or your GPS. ( It is very hard to take pictures of it while inside so out side with a sign will do )
