Through my Binoculars….

Some pictures taken THROUGH my binoculars! (OK, they’re not actually my binoculars, they’re Mr AMR’s. But, as they say, what’s his is mine and what’s mine is…er…mine, so it’s all good.)

Mr AMR told me that I wouldn’t be able to take a photo of a “binocularfied” view (my made-up word) and so I made it my mission to attempt it. It wasn’t much of a mission in the end, I just held my iPhone lens to the binocular eyepiece and pressed the photo button! Results below.

Are you impressed with my espionage skills? You should see the pictures that I took through people’s windows!


We are going to have a go at taking magnified pictures of the moon too. I can’t wait! But I will have to wait as I’m gadding about all over Europe this week (I’m in Paris as you’re reading this, and Hamburg after Paris) so moon-gazing can be a little treat to look forward to!


  1. Chapeau to your determination on this one!

  2. Yes, very impressive, it really worked!
    Wow, so many notable buildings pressed together and a bit of nature in between. Pretty!

  3. Which binoculars do you have Ruth? Am clueless on the subject, but am thinking of buying some for my mum so she can watch the birdies in the garden!

    Ps. you must live quite high up to get those kinds of views of london?!

  4. YES!
    I am so glad someone else has had the quirk of mind like your good self to employ this technique : )
    You should also have a crack at taking pix with a coloured candy cellophane wrapper in front of the lens. The world looks pleasingly psychedelic through one of those, believe me. I was at a friend’s BBQ and they had all these weird little statues & gargoyles in the garden. Yoda looked especially trippy through my lens lol No one believed it’d work until I did it, and then they all wanted to do it!! xx

    • @Yasmin we truly are the pioneers of the photography world, I feel. With your cellophane, and my binoculars, we could do such splendid things! ; )
