Over the Moon

I am "over the moon" with glee!
I found the Baby Brownie camera in an antique shop in Wisconsin
and it was calling my name.  Only $8.50 too.
Home it came and I found film online.
I wasn't sure it would work, but
I took the risk.

What do you think?
I am in love with my little camera.
Thanks Blue Moon Camera Shop for doing such a great job developing my pictures!
I am a happy girl!

I remember using one of those when I was a little girl too. In fact my mom had a little box camera that at some time I used as a doll house. *bad me*
they're so cute, and much easier to hold than those itty bitty ones now. And not bad on the photos either.

What a find and the pics are just fabulous Marilyn! I still love black and white, also sepia toned.

That looks like it was a fun exercise with the antique Brownie camera and I love the results.

Jeanie said...

Oh, Marilyn -- that's amazing -- a fabulous find! I love the photos. There is such mood to the sepia and it feels right, given the age of the camera.

Yes, you SHOULD be a happy girl!

Laurie said...

Oh Marilyn! That's my camera! We had the same one growing up, and it took awesome pictures. I wish I knew what happened to it, and didn't know you could still get film for them!

Omigosh, Marilyn. I'm so excited for you. I've yearned for my old brownie camera and recently started looking around in nooks and crannies at antique and collectible shops but so far, no luck.

I cannot BELIEVE that price. Outstanding. And you found film for it!! Awesome. I love the results. I'm blown away. LOL Can you tell I'm totally excited.

Thank you so much for mentioning this post to me. I totally missed it but I'm forgiven, I know. I was slightly busy last week. :-)
