cameras here and there

If you walk into my home at any given moment, you will find cameras on almost every surface.  On the table, on a shelf, on a desk…. just as long as it is out of reach of little hands.

And there’s a reason to this madness.   At any given moment – I’ll grab what’s closest to me.  To document what I see, right there, at that time.  And when I’m heading out the door, I’ll grab the closest camera that is loaded with film and carefully set it in my bag.  It’s heavy, yes – and cumbersome, yes – but I almost feel as if I’m lost if I don’t have at least one with me.  You’d be amazed at how film cameras are quite the conversation starters.

This weekend, the hasselblad with the polaroid back with my camera of choice.  More to share soon….

    Love this shot and of course that camera. Better than a pair of Louboutins and far more useful. CarlaReplyCancel

    I love that you have cameras loaded with film around your house. I might have to borrow this idea. I take many digital photos, however, my film cameras are a bit neglected. You have inspired me to load them all up and leave them around the house. Love the Hasselblad with Polaroid back. I am a bit envious :) Happy shooting!ReplyCancel
