Kodak Brownie Target 620 1941-1946

 The years between 1941 and 1946 were tough. But this
old camera survived and made it to me from  New York. It was rusted shut and took some work to get it open.

 I've been having a long string of unsuccessful "found film"
efforts and rust wasn't going to stop me.



























  Zeiss Ikon Ikonta 520/18  1931-1937

 Early models, like the one at left, were called "Ikomats" in the USA.
This one takes 127 film and is well used. I'm sure its original owner would
be amazed at this camera's travels etc.. The camera came from West Virginia.

























Well loved.

 Far and away the favorite snapshot photograph subject is the child.
 No matter who we are we feel the weight of time.

Perceived recollections sometimes drift through my thoughts. They're like partially recalled
dreams. A mixture of truth and fiction.
