Tuesday is for Etsy: Romancing the Lens

Tuesday is for Etsy is dedicated to the beauty of the camera. Romancing the Lens:

 


In no particular order:
My very own Vintage Rainbow SX70 Polaroid OneStep! (via Mother Midnight)

I also find myself visiting Camerapedia.org to find out more about certain vintage cameras.

I ♥ cameras. Vintage ones the best. I am lucky enough to have had a dad who was a voracious camera collector. I was able to keep 3: Diana (toy camera), Brownie (my mom's first camera) & Pentax (my dad bought in 1980 & is my favourite).  I only wish I could find his beautiful original Polaroid Land SX70 (the folding one lined in leather). Oh, how I loved that camera!

I keep meaning to take my old Pentax SLR out for a spin, but find the ease of digital to win me over every time I leave the home.  One day, though, I will buy film & kick it old school!

  4. bibbys - You're welcome! Camerapedia is such a wealth of information; I get lost in the info & clicking on all the links. :)

    cassia - those glasses are da bomb, aren't they? Love your photography!
