School: The Archer School for Girls

Teacher: Helen Reese

This picture was taken at the front of our school on a bright spring day. The sunlight streamed through the double convex lens, inverting the image. As rays of light hit the lens, they are refracted, causing what we see as the top of the maypole to appear as the bottom, thus creating this fun illusion.
