The Duaflex II

Shooting the Duaflex

The other day I ordered some film for the Duaflex II and Brownie cameras to see if they still worked. Of course the minute I did, I was reminded of how much I enjoyed TTV pictures and wanted to do some more of those. But anyway, I loaded both cameras with film and decided that I’d take one camera along with each new shoot I thought up. Unfortunately, I forgot the first couple times. I remembered today and decided nothing was planned except our walk along the river, so why not take one of the cameras with us. I took the Duaflex. It’s pretty blah outside, it’s snowy and cold, but not snowing as in amazing snow and ice covered trees that take your breath away. Just snow and brown trees. *yawn* I ended up just taking a couple shots of the trees and Anna, then took a few pictures of Anna with the Duaflex. I had the Lensbaby Muse on (expecting large fluffy snowflakes to fall all around-which they didn’t until we got home. =P)

I hope to finish off the roll in the Duaflex, which I think was black and white, and the roll in the Brownie, which I think was color, within the next month. I’m going to ship them off to The Darkroom in California for processing.

The Photographers

So every weekend I take pictures for Fro Knows Photo’s Weekend theme- that’s what a lot of my photos are for. This weekend’s theme is “Reflections” and aside from all the obvious types of shots with water, mirrors, shadows, et al, I started drawing out ideas and kept coming back to the thought that pictures are just reflections in a camera. It just so happens my Mother bought me an old Brownie Six 20 as an early birthday present and I wanted to photograph it. Β (I want to take photos *with* it too =P) So I told the kids to pick a camera from my three and pose for me. Tiarnan is wearing an old Velvet suit I’ve hauled around for years, but never worn. I loved it because of the awkward length on him, since they’re actually cropped pants on me.

Anna looks so serious in this picture, and it’s not because she was unhappy with posing, it was because a fly kept landing on her leg!
