The Camera Obscura, on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile

camera obscuraMy sketch of the Camera Obscura and World of Illusion, which has delighted and intrigued people in Edinburgh for over 150 years

Mirrors, lenses and daylight combine to produce a moving panorama of Edinburgh’s city centre, projected onto a viewing table within the mid 19th Century purpose built visitor attraction.


Over six floors of optical illusions and interactive exhibits, your mind will be tricked, amazed and engaged. Great fun for all the family, I can’t wait to return! For more information about the city centre attraction visit their website, link below.


This sketch featured in this week’s WhereArtI competition and was drawn to create this table number illustration below. My full set of Edinburgh table numbers can be ordered for any event, including weddings and conferences. To see more drop me an email at contact@edinburghsketcher.com
