cameras and a new hobby

ever since i read this blog post, i have been obsessed with the look of ttv photography. the photographs are super romantic and entrancing. plus i love their square shape. i have been scouring thrift stores for an appropriate old camera, but haven't found one, so i finally bit the bullet and turned to ebay. i was originally looking for a kodak duraflex, but settled on this little brownie for $20 after shipping. not great, but not an awful price either. i am going to build my contraption this weekend and hopefully be back early next week to show you my first batch of photos.

looking through the brownie lens, i can already see flecks of black which will add to the end result. super excited!!!


  1. oh you make me remember the days of photography class back in highschool....

    building a pin hole camera was loads of fun....

    i just love the look of old cameras...I have an old canon that now adorns my living room shelf...isn't it fun!

    can't wait to see what you do!
    ciao bella

  2. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with your "new" camera. Have fun!


thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. i love reading each and every one and am thrilled you decided to visit linwood avenue!
