Home made pinhole camera filled with paper and left out for about 10-12 weeks. Taped to my attic window. After a few weeks it had come half unstuck and was then facing slightly up, after 10 weeks, it had fallen down completely and I opened it. Not much to see, just streaks indicating the passing of the sun.

    These are amazing! When you say it's filled with paper, is it just "normal" paper? Or some specific kind of paper for this?

    @julia-b: It's photographic paper. It's actually ment to make black and white prints (in a darkroom, not in a printer), but it you expose it for a long time (weeks or months), the picture shows up without any chemical at all. There's loads of tutorials around, if you're interested, like this one: http://www.instructa(…)olargraphy/
    It's pretty easy to make and fun to try. Here's a picture of one of my pinhole camera's in long term action:
