Life at night
The $15 camera has a very narrow range of light conditions in which it will function. Unlike most cameras which will take a photograph regardless of external conditions, this one merely beeps twice, signaling its refusal to capture an image. In the photo at right, I had to fake it out in order to snap this beautiful shot in which you can see the cables and tower of the Bay Bridge which connects San Francisco and Oakland, California. I believe the overhead street lamp at the top of the frame provided enough light to trick the camera into taking a photo, even though the ambient light at that time of day was too low to take any additional photos.
