Brownie Hawkeye Maui Edition

by in film, hawaii, photography

You might have noticed, I like photography. All the photos on this blog are my own. Either created in the lovely natural light of my apartment or taken somewhere on the road, usually outside of Canada and occasionally somewhere on the lower mainland.

I recently rediscovered an old camera of my dads; a cool little bakelite box, the Brownie Hawkeye. After doing some reading I decided to load up some 120 film and shoot off a roll. I didn’t bother to clean any part of the camera thinking that I want to see what 50+ years of dust and history looks like. While I was happy enough with those first shots, doing this gave me some insight into the toy camera, its focal distance and exposure. Armed with a bit of knowledge, I decided to take it apart, clean it and flip the lens. Flipping the lens resulted in images with a softer, ethereal feel and a very sweet, defined focal point. I captured the following Maui moments with the next roll of film.

    Hello,

    I'm always on the lookout for key websites and blogs to network with. After reviewing your site, I would like to offer you a guest post on my blog (http://OneTravel.wordpress.com). Some bloggers I contact write about places all over the word, others discuss only a single place (their home) in great detail, while others focus on a single activity like fishing or biking. Either way, my audience loves to travel and they want to learn about places and activities they can take part in.

    If you would be interested in writing as a guest, please feel free to contact me so we can discuss our potential exciting affiliation. Also it would be extremely helpful if you could provide me with any specific information about your blog, , that you would like to be included in the post. Aside from the guest blog post, you’ll be receiving a link back to your site.

    If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

    I look forward to hearing from you.
