There is something about old cameras I just adore... All the memories they have captured over the years, stirs in me true sense of nostalgia and every time I find one on a thrifting adventure, it just has to come home with me. Now I love all old cameras but I'm particularly partial to Polaroids.. and over years of searching and a few very lucky finds, I've discovered a few treasures.
I just love all the different shapes and sizes, flashes, boxes and old instruction manuals.
I have spent years searching for a cream Polaroid One Step with the adorable rainbow and I was so excited to find one at the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market in NYC. But would you believe within a month of getting home from my trip I found the 1000 (with the green button) at a little second hand store on the outskirts of town. So now I have a gorgeous pair!
I also have a pair of fabulous old Polaroid land cameras, that just make my heart sing every time I pick them up. Although until now I have only used them for props, so I can't wait to fire them up one day!
So what does one do with this many cameras? Take lots of photos of course! Now I haven't tried them all, so I'm not sure if many of them work, but on my to do list this year is to purchase a whole stack of film and find out. I can't wait to see the weird and wonderful outcomes and really, there is nothing quite like shaking a Polaroid picture!
Do you have a thing for cameras? I'd love to hear about your collection!
