Old Cameras, the Funky and Blasts from the Past

In the same Johnson City shop where the world's ugliest Christmas tree was found last Saturday, these old cameras were found too.
I had an old Brownie camera just like the one in the center left. And, I'm not sure that I did not have one like the one on the right in the bottom photo. We've come a long, long way in cameras.
There were more blast from the past items. Check out the wrought iron wash basin with a mirror and tiny drawers on each side. There is an old refrigerator, wheel chair, Persian rug, some kind of huge tongs, and a straw/reed fishing basket. Had to add the little red truck and trailer picture frames to balance out the collage layout.
Then there is the funky. How about those decorated deer heads with antlers? Don't you just love the black and white checked mirror as well as those 1930-40's aprons? I well remember my mother and aunts wearing them.

BTW, in case you noticed I upgraded the Corel PaintShop Pro X2 to the X3. It is a really neat program which included Corel PaintShop Project Creator with the package which makes it super easy to do collages. Expect at lot of collages on this blog in the future. Collages of all kinds fascinate me.

Until next time, God bless.

I love seeing those old cameras, they are so interesting. We have come a long way with photography. The collages are great and filled with lots of treasures, I spent quite a bit of time looking though the photos.

Great job on the collages, looks like the upgraded program is a winner.
