    :shock: OMG I love them. Especially the first, but still love them both. What camera did you shoot them with? Film? Developing? Printing? Lay it on me, man, I gotta know... :D

    I love the second one, PB. The deliberate softness works much better here than in the first one, I think. Although #1 could *almost* get away with an Impressionist feel, especially if it were hand tinted.

    More info, please? :D Camera, film type, lens..... you know the drill.

    holy crap!! Ye olde box camera..... :love: I've been collecting a few, since they're so inexpensive and so cool-looking. They are in varying degrees of repair....I can't wait to get out and play with mine soon. I hope to get something along these lines. :thumbsup:

    Very cool. I keep looking and looking at box cameras (and other old cams) whenever at antique stores, but I haven't yet found one that I just had to have (or that I wanted to pay the price for). I really want one tho. And some of the cute little Brownie Specials I've seen, and lots of stuff really...

    I love them. The first is my favorite.

    Is the lens supposed to do this? Or is it dirty, fungus, etc....

    I like that first one. It reminds me of an old oil painting.

    I am not sure why these photos turned out as they did. The lens looks OK. I think this camera was designed for glass plates ? Perhaps the slight difference in distance from lens to film creates the unusual photos. I will be shooting this again very soon. Results will be posted here.
    For anyone looking to buy a box camera, E-Bay is the place to shop. They sell for $10 or less and are easy to repair if necessary.
