I couldn't decide which version of that photo I preferred, do you have a favorite? Which one whispers to you? So far, it seems the retro one is in the lead.

I am totally in love with these 2 vintage Kodak Duaflex cameras I have, someday I'd like to own more and fill a bookshelf with their well-worn beauty. E-bay was the source of some incredible deals on them a few years ago when I first became obsessed with TTV photography.  I haven't taken any shots in quite awhile, as my gear bag is already too heavy to lug around... but after rediscovering them last night - well, I sense aTTV photo walk in the near future! Russ is the go-to guy on the art of TTV;  please check him out to learn more.

 Since we're on the subject of camera gear... I am lusting over the Blackbird Fly Twin Lens Reflex camera shown here... I don't have a fun budget right now, but I'd be sooo willing to trade a large original painting, a print etc for one! Until it becomes my reality, I can at least dream... which as you know, is one of my all-time favorite past-times.

"Maybe because it's entirely an artist's eye, patience and skill that makes an image and not his tools."

-Ken Rockwell, Your Camera Does Not Matter, 2005

Love fun photography gear as much as I do? My photography wish list is full of other awesome things. Join me in the droolfest!

 Are you participating in the Assignment 52 project as well? Drop me a comment so I can visit your interpretations of the theme too.

 Hope you have a picture perfect day!
