On article Throwback Thursday: Our first cameras (391 comments in total)

I must be one of the oldest here... my first camera was a Brownie Baby Hawkeye, got it around 1951. Learned to shoot, and develop and print (B&W) with that Bakelite wonder.... Somewhere I still have the very first print I made in 1951, a contact print of my neighbor's son.

You can get the same type of stuff in sheet form for much less. It's called Quake Secure, available on Amazon, and I use it to hold stuff in place in my motor home. Works great, holds tight, comes off cleanly. I've used it to hold camera gear before, wish I would have thought of marketing it...

You can buy three X100T's for that price. And get a more innovative viewfinder to go with it. Not for me...

On article Winter Wonderland: Don Komarechka's snowflakes (36 comments in total)

Last year, I attended a presentation by a scientist who photographically records the formation of ice. Don's work reminds me of that. Images of things we can see but never actually observe.

My favorite all time camera was the OM-4T. If that comes back in digital form I'll be in front of the "gotta have it" line....
