Outfit: Take me a picture

I think I've mentioned it before on the blog but I'll say it again: I used to be very much into vintage cameras! So much so, in fact, that I used to run a small blog where I would write old camera reviews, accompanied by photos that I took with them. My collection at one point was around 40 cameras! This interest has since waned but there still are a couple of analog cameras sitting on our shelves, in part for decoration and in part as a reminder that taking photos with them is always an option. The Ansco that I have in today's shoot is a 1950s medium format camera that we scored in its original faux leather case, with an attachment flash complete with a couple of those fun disposable flashbulbs that have since gone out of production. As this camera uses a type of film that is --again --no longer in production, there is a slim chance we'll ever use it but it's a cool piece of modernist design to have around.

I've also been pleasantly surprised by the weather lately! During our September vacations we actually were really cold most of the time but October seems to be making up for that. I certainly didn't think I'd get to go out with bare legs this year anymore but what do you know? The cardigan wasn't even a necessity and the dress I'm wearing, although rather sheer, was just perfect on its own!

  1. So sad that the film isn't being made for this camera anymore. My family has a few vintage cameras around, from when my parents were young, and it's the same thing with them too. But I agree that they make lovely decor anyways!
