Kodak Brownie Starflex c1957-1964

 There's not much to be said about cameras as pedestrian as this one.  Well, it does have a "Dakon" lens and a red shutter button. There's a fancy shape on the viewfinder cover. But.... there was a roll of Kodacolor - X in this Starflex.

The camera made it to me via Michigan.











































It's amazing how bright viewfinders can be on crappy cameras. I have to squint when I used my Rolleiflex.

  I'm fascinated with the people in these found films. I think it's so cool that the camera I now own was once in the presence of these long gone souls. Anyway, there's no way in hell that anybody disliked this sweetheart. Teeth or no teeth.















































Cameras are ingrained into our lives. They show up at every family event, big or small. We want to capture the day as it slips away. We know how to pose. We know what's appropriate for the photo.








































Shamu...you're next !

 "Get him when he jumps, honey."






























Something of interest happened just before the Starflex operator tripped the shutter. I'll bet it had something to do with a boat.
































Elephant ass.
