Artist's Description

CUTE What, you don’t think this little guy is cute? He’s only a couple of inches high, and you can hide it in your hand. He has a tiny metal bellows you have to set. He’s old, now: made 1950 to 1958. So, isn’t he just a cute little livin/ doll?

I’ve had this little gem for about 20 years.
Once, he had lots of pals in my collection of old cameras,
but I had to leave them behind when I moved Up North.
Guess I didn’t need all that clutter anyway. >sigh<

The Beacon here collapses to put it back into its case,
and when you want to use it, you simply pull the square
around the lens toward you to put the little bellows in ‘action mode’. Then you have a point ‘n’ shoot 5’ to infinity, if you can see that far.

I think it’s made of Bakelite®, which is what light-switch covers are still made of.

Taken ages ago on my Olympus E500. These were my technical, less-artsy days: Alright, everybody look at me and say, “AHHHHH!” -=DS
