Connor and I used the first half of our respective camera rolls on a late autumn day with leaves blowing and green grass aplenty. The next weekend, we finished up our rolls on a snowy winter morning.
In an age of smartphones and selfie sticks, I’m doing my best to raise a budding young photographer.
One brisk morning last November, Connor and I went out to photograph in our yard — he with his little blue camera, and me with my long-neglected ActionSampler.
I love seeing his perspective on me…
…versus my perspective on him.
I picked up this little four-panel camera at Savers for 99¢ a few weeks back. This was one of the test shots I took over my lunch break, while walking in a local park. I’m impressed with the focal length, as this shot was taken at arm’s-length, a distance that makes most of my cameras cringe in blurry horror.
After only a moment of research this evening, I think I may actually have an honest-to-god Lomo ActionSampler. All the details of this unlabeled thrift-store find look exactly like the cameras on the lomography website.
