photos :: box of cameras

Last weekend a friend of mine gave me two cardboard boxes full of cameras that someone she knew was getting rid of. I was so excited going through the boxes and now I have a ton more cute cameras to display in our home and there are even some that I will probably use! Here are some of them for you to peek at...
It is so hard for me to choose a favourite camera from the bunch. There is also this tiny little one that I will show you another time, it's so tiny and adorable.

  36. I missed it too (found you this summer) and am a vintage camera collector too!! :) I actually inherited all of my dad's old cameras and that started me down the path of buying every cool one I see at the thrift shops. I really need to show them off. Love the Duaflex III!
