Brownie Hawkeye Camera

This was my Dad's Brownie. My first camera was a brownie--I must have been about ten--the 60's. It's amazing how the camera has changed through the years, from a box with a hole to today's digital cameras. I have no clue as to what happens inside the digital to make an instant picture!
Watercolor, 7"x 7"

Nice one, Sue! How many of Dad's old cameras do you have? That's wild that we both had Wally Schwartz on the mind yesterday...
(I know we knew who WS was when I was writing my post, but I had to think of a couple of names to pop into that story...)
Love the camera series!

I may paint the minolta? next--that's the one he could do double exposures with. My 35mm camera was dad's. My daughter has an even older 35mm, and my son has an even newer 35mm than mine, both used to be dad's. I also have an instimatic, a big ugly thing that I might not be motivated to paint.

Wish I had kept some of my old cameras, they make fabulous sketching subjects, so patiently quiet and so full of character.

and full of buttons, doors, nobs, dials, numbers and lenses!! I'm saying this after painting the Mamyia--------momma mamyia!
