Sepia Saturday

Sepia Saturday Header 431 : 11 August 2018

This week we’re prompted to post photos of photographers. Quite meta, huh?

I think the old days of big, bulky cameras is quite romantic, while the small compact cameras like the one with the lady holding a hair brush (for reasons that escape me).

I have no idea why she’s holding the brush like that. The description didn’t say.

Above is a group of photos of old cameras. I remember my first instamatic. It didn’t have the full flashbulb attachment, but I do remember those too.

  1. The woman in negligee with hair brush and SLR camera is a bit creepy, though unintentional. And Wilbur is about to walk in front of where the photographer has pointed his camera! Odd. I laughed when I got to your last image as one the many now useless camera accessories my dad accumulated was flash attachments. I have so many of those silvery fan flashes that I’ve been considering making them into an light fixture with LED bulbs.
