Knowing that I love camera's, my half sister gave me her mother's old Kodax.
It was fascinating to take a peek into the last photos her mother took before
she stopped snapping photos.
What I use this camera for is to take digital photos through the viewfinder.
Can you see my reflection and the trees I am seeing through the viewfinder?
I found this Brownie, a very simple box camera, at an antique shop in Wisconsin
a few years ago. It was $5. and I couldn't resist.
Do you see the viewfinder on it, it pops up and works quite well to help in framing
the photo. Also check out the rustic lever for taking the picture.
It took me awhile to find film for this little gem, but I found a place right
here in Portland that sells the film and also does the developing.
Now this is my new beauty.
My mother-in-law gave me a little money last Christmas
and I wanted to buy something special.
After all these months I decided this was it.
It feels like I am taking pictures with Mickey Mouse's camera
because it is big and again quite simple.
The fun thing is the picture pops out the top of the camera
and in minutes I see the results.
Now I must say my Canon Rebel is the camera I most often use;
but when I want a different effect or just to play a bit,
these cameras just make me smile.
Do you like taking pictures?
What camera makes you smile?
