My Other Camera...

Challenge #1 in the Engineering series. Hosted by Atrin.
Challenge has finished
Time to kick off the Engineering Series. Our first challenge is to photograph a remarkable and beautiful piece of engineering that you use regularly: your camera. In this challenge you are to photograph your other camera, as a beautiful and living piece of engineering. Let your imagination go wild, treat the camera as a living breathing entity. Don't just sit it on a table and snap a picture of it. Your camera witnesses a lot in this world, it explores the world with you. It is your silent and trusty companion. It's a lot more exciting than you may think it is.

I added poster edges and lens flair in PS, to remind me of what I could only do semi-accidentally in the camera back in the 70's when this baby was a baby. This was one of the first cameras with electronic shutter control.
