Calendars

This calendar is a sort of ouroboros… cameras taking pictures of cameras… it’s like a box full of boxes or a bag filled with bags! When does the redundancy end???
I have a rather large, eclectic collection of cameras. I’m not one of those ebay kids who sits at the computer, clicking home a collection, I gathered these up over years of thrift store digging. Most of them I paid less than $5 for and the majority of them still work. Last few years (thanks to the ebay hipsters & photography trends) they’ve been harder to come by. The oldest is a Kodak Vest Pocket from 1913 which belonged to my grandpa & perhaps his father before him.

There are only a few from the collection in this calendar but I will probably be making a habit of these types of sessions until the weather cheers up a bit.
All were lit with a desk lamp that Mickey Spillane might have once owned, taken with my Canon 40D with my makeshift macro lens dealio strapped to it. (I’m not telling you how it’s done, [it’s easily enough found on google] but I will tell you it’s amazing what happens when you start disassembling lenses & looking though them backwards.)
the models:
Kodak Automatic 35
Olympus Trip 35
Olympus Pen-ee S

..and my beloved teacher, muse, manifesto & knock-knock joke… my Pentax K1000

    Great stuff, mr Trout and mr Jones, I also have a 35mm collection.. 3 Pentax Spotmatic cams, two of which Spotmatic F! The only diff with the incredible K1000 is the through the lens metering I think.. and the “F” is for flash; it had a flash shoe..
