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.
