Moment of nerdiness this week: I got REALLY excited when I found the original lens for my glass slide projector. I was visiting my grandparents and my grandpa and I were rooting around in a box of lenses and I saw the projector lens and said something like “OMG that must be the original lens for my projector!” I don’t think my grandpa knows what OMG means, so I probably didn’t say it exactly like that.
Ok, so you probably don’t know what the heck this projector is even for. I think the most accurate term for this device is “magic lantern” and it is a lot like a regular film slide projector except that it projects glass slides.
There is definitely fun to be had with such a projector and I have a few photos of my maiden effort at such fun. Again, this was just a first test so expect an update with more photos at some point.
