Happy New Year!

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to get on here and wish everyone who follows me, as well as everyone who stumbles upon my blog, a very happy and healthy new year.

As for new year resolutions……I’ve got nothing. 🙂 Any suggestions?

I haven’t posted anything in a few months (I apologize for that), I had a very busy autumn and holiday season. Now that it’s all over, I’m hoping to get my groove back! (Maybe that can be my resolution!) I’m hoping to have the time again to go out and shoot some photos. I find myself in the middle just at the beginning a dreary winter here again, so I’ll have to get creative. Sometimes you can only photograph snow so much….

I did manage to do a couple of shoots – one of my brand new neice, and one of my sister with her boyfriend. I don’t have much experience at all doing portraits, but I am proud of some of these!

This one is fun

And here’s a few of my new niece, Elizabeth. Who doesn’t love pictures of a beautiful baby??


Look what I found…

I bought some old cameras from an antique dealer today and started researching them online. I found some basic info on each, but not much more. I’m definitely keeping them, but I also want to know how much they might be worth. If you know anything about these, please tell me! I’m curious.

The first 2 Brownie cameras I didn’t buy today, they were actually my great-grandmother’s that I acquired a few months ago. I just added a few to my small collection today.

Kodak No. 2 Model D Brownie.


Kodak No. 2 Model D Brownie…..I found some info here: http://www.brownie-camera.com/53.shtml. If this is the correct info, then this model was first produced in 1914. Wow, that’s old. 🙂  Here’s the other one from my great-grandmother:

Kodak No.2 Model C Hawkeye Brownie


This is the handle of the one pictured above

I’m having some trouble finding the correct info on this one. I found this webpage about the No. 2 Model C Brownie: http://www.brownie-camera.com/57.shtml, but I don’t know if it’s the same one, since mine says Hawk-Eye on the handle. Is this a different model than the one on the website?

These I bought today.

No. 2A Model C Brownie


I found info on this No. 2A Model C Brownie here: http://www.brownie-camera.com/56.shtml. I’m pretty confident this is the correct info for this camera, and it looks exactly the same as the photo on the website. According to the website, this was made anywhere from 1924-1936.

Though it doesn’t seem to be very rare or valuable, I think this Kodak Hawkeye Instamatic is pretty cool.

 I read about this one, and these were made from 1964-1971. I’d love to get my hands on a flashcube for it…

Here’s another Brownie

Baby Brownie Special

This one is kind of cute…from the 40’s.

So I would love to know more about these, but don’t know where else to look…
