a dollar

this camera does not function in the conventional way
$1

it was a mystery found on a dusty table in a drive by garage sale

royal reflections

I considered it a found treasure ...a blank page

half reflection

using reflections in the lens and viewfinder

lens multiplied


as a playful and unique way to see the world

viewfinder geraniums

may this day show you life from different angles and imagination
there is plenty of that at Julia's Hooked on Houses

what a treasure! it has been a while since i've allowed myself to spend time in garage sales - i always end up buying too many things :)

Country Girl said...

Wow. That's unique. I miss going to garage sales. But I have too much junk. And most of it's still packed.

Liss said...

#1 camera’s are defiantly something to be hooked on. No film required just a creative mind.

beth said...

I think I need to hit some garage sales today, too, in hopes of finding something cool :)

Pop some film in that baby!

I remember how stoked I was to find a working Polaroid Impulse for .25 at a roadside garage sale!

Hey there! Thank you for visiting my blog.

I love how you've taken someone else's cast-off and used it to see the world differently. Beautiful images.

i love finding stuff like that at a garage sale. old cameras just look neat sitting out on a shelf I think.

I love finds like this! so creative and fun. It reminds me to pull out the paper today and see if there are any yard sales near me tomorrow.

Oh, how cool! A friend sent me her camera and I was surprised to discover it was quite a relic. I'll be using it for a photo class, so I want to play with it now.

kendalee said...

Oh I love this! The camera and the idea that it encourage you (and us) to consider life from different angles... great find!

Kimmie said...

Very cool find - I would be tempted to take it apart to see what's inside :)

Oliag said...

What fun! Will we be seeing film pics? I found a great 1$ Polaroid camera at thrift store...then discovered the film costs 20$ for 10 shots! Won't be doing that often:)

Marcie said...

FUN!! I guess you never know what you'll find when you go hunting. Love the visual effects!

Looks like a fun find. I just bought an old Canon SLR on Ebay for $20 and I am excited to get it.

I love old cameras :)

joanne said...

yes... casting our eyes in unique and different directions so often brings us fresh perspective... whether it be through the lens of a viewfinder or through our own eyes... wonderful images, and what a treasure to find at a garage sale!

That next to last shot with your hand in it - very clever! I love garage sales even if I only buy a paperback. My family keeps telling me I have too much "stuff" but I love my "stuff"!

Christina said...

Now this looks like fun!
