52 Project – Vintage

After a week hiatus due to moving we’re back with this week’s 52 Project topic Antique/Vintage. After thinking about this task for a day I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I hired Ellie, who was paid in treats, to take some photos with my late 1960’s Calumet 4×5 medium format film camera. It started out pretty promising with her making adjustments and looking through the viewfinder, but quickly she started daydreaming and then fell asleep on the job. Soon after she was fired, but unfortunately she collected her pay up front so I was out of luck all the way around. Enjoy!

On a more serious note the camera used in our photo shoot belonged to my Uncle John. It was a gift he received from his parents when he graduated from RIT with a degree in Photography in the 60s. It was given to me after he passed away in August 2012. He is forever loved and missed.

Now head down to sunny Florida to see what antique or vintage photos Emma Grace Photography – Pet Photographer based in Clearwater, FL and the surrounding Tampa Bay area came up with. Follow the blog circle around until you get back here. Welcome to August!

      If by use you mean as a prop in a photo shoot then yes. Otherwise, not yet 😉
