brownie, originally uploaded by Valerie Morrison.

a few months ago a relative passed in death and this past weekend a few of us went over to his place to help clean out his house.

i saw this brownie sitting in the floor and naturally was intrigued by it. i did a little research and originally this camera sold for $5, today it’s worth twice as much, or 10 bucks.

i may try to find film for it or i may continue to use it as a prop. i used three different lenses to take this series of photos, hand held and a tripod, natural lighting coming from the living room windows and sooc.

  1. So sorry to hear about the passing of your relative, Val.

    ((( Val )))

    And what a wonderful item for you to have as a memory/keepsake!

    OMG…$5??? Even at 10 bucks I think that’s really great.

    As soon as I saw this photo I was immediately transported back into 50’s. I think I remember seeing one of my own relatives with one similar to this.

    Awesome shot! I also enjoyed viewing the series.

      thanks ron (( )).

      yes, i don’t normally like to keep things, but i will get some use out of this camera as a camera and a prop. going to put some film in it soon, just have to order it. i’m interested in seeing the results.

      appreciate it meleah.

      i would like to run one roll of film through it. pretty expensive for 8-12 exposures though and processing. i’ll just have to close my eyes and do it.

    Condolences. Might be hard to find film now as so many different films have been phased out in the last few years, but good luck with the hunt!

Speak on it!
