Me, My Dad & My Hawkeye ♥

This tried & true Brownie Hawkeye Flash camera was given to me by my Brother who acquired it somehow from our Dad. Dad picked it up in the late 1950’s as a young, Dutch immigrant guy living & farming in Southern Alberta. Seeing that I love this camera so much and tote it around faithfully from country to country, I thought I would share with you some of my favourite Brownie Hawkeye photos from around the world.

I ♥ my Dad to bits and he’s going to be 70 soon, so in his honour, I’d like to show you a very cool picture of him from his younger days!

(Not taken with the Hawkeye unfortunately.)
