    OK, I am not an Argonaut.

    Well, maybe I am not Adventurous either.

    But! I am from Alabama and my name is Alex. :D

    My name is Alex, and I just recently started collecting cameras. I ended up selling some(regretfully), but still have some, and will be buying more whenever possible.

    I like old box cameras and high quality 60s, 70s, and 80s cameras.

    Basically, I like the cheap stuff, because I am cheap.
    I have a small and amateuresque collection, so here it is:

    I took this image a couple of days ago(I am a poor photographer as well), but have added some since. So, I will post the first image and the cameras included, then I will post the new ones in another image(please pardon the cheap aging effects).. :)

    Hi Alex, welcome to the forum. Do you use any of those neat collectables? There are a lot of members here that are really into that, so don't be a stranger.
