The Accidental Collector…
Over the years, my “accidental” collection of cameras has grown. I call it accidental because I never intended to collect them. Many years ago, my father brought me a cardboard box full of old cameras that he had bought at a yard sale. My collection began that very day, and an interesting thing happened; as soon as people heard that I “collected” them, they gave me cameras! I didn’t ask for them… I didn’t seek them out… they found me.
There are many cameras in my accidental collection which I love. Some of the cameras are old, some are rare, some are beautifully made, and some, like the Savoy (120 roll film), are just plain cool.
Do you have a favorite camera that you’ve collected?
Here is the Savoy, (photographed with light painting, of course) in fabulous lime green:
