Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Any Kind of Camera or Photographers

Camera’s and Photographers

Photographers

While I generally try to avoid getting other people in my photos sometimes photographing the photographers can be fun and sometimes a way to get a casual photo of a friend or relative when they are occupied and not thinking about posing.

Rail fans love taking line side photos of trains, my friend Bruce is somewhere in this picture.

Here is Bruce taking photos while we were on a cruise on the Gordon River near Strahan six years ago this weekend. It was not a nice day but he persevered.

I took this one of David at Port Huon a few years ago. He always had a camera in the car in case he saw something he wanted to photograph although he rarely ever seemed to get a film developed once we moved here. He was thinking about buying a DSLR when he was taken ill.

Photographer at work, Gardens By the Bay , Singapore. From my point of view they spoiled my picture of the Super Trees but as a picture of a photographer and model it works.

Cameras

This is the camera I use most often now.

My Pentax K10

As I have mentioned in the past David used to collect cameras. These next two photos are of some of  them. First a Bell & Howell 8mm movie camera and then two instant cameras, one by Polaroid and the other by Kodak.

This last one is Paparazzi Dog, a bronze sculpture in Salamanca Place. There are a series of these in various cities around the world. I even saw one in Singapore though I neglected to photograph it.

Snapshot Sunday: Vintage Cameras

David’s parents’ Kodak box camera and our mum’s Agfa.

I was stumped for a good picture today and decided to share this one of two of the cameras that David had in his collection. Both of these belonged to family members. The Kodak Brownie I believe belonged to David’s parents the battered Agfa on the right belonged to our mum. She used it to take photos of Naomi and I as small children. This was actually the first camera I ever used myself. Mum showed me how to hold it and take the pictures. She would change the film for me. I remember that it was 120 film and you would get about 8 photos to the roll. I was probably six or seven years old when I was first allowed to use this camera.
