Pinhole Cameras and a Red Arrows Fly Past, Brome, Suffolk - 16th May 2020

As part of a vague attempt to do "home schooling", Nosher and the boys are messing around with a BitBot - a small robot buggy controlled by a programmable MicroBit computer - as well as with pinhole photography - no lens on the camera, just a bit of foil with a pin-prick hole in it - as a way to learn about lenses. After that, Fred has a go with the old bellows, which enable super-macro photography with standard lenses. Later on, the Red Arrows are on their way from RAF Scampton to Westminster for a VE-Day fly past, the track of which takes them right over the house at about 500 feet.
