Obsession

Newer Older

Lots of analogue cameras and 1 digital toy camera. View Larger On Black
*note: this is not all of my cameras, I neglected to bring out quite a few stored elsewhere. Since this photo was taken I have also acquired a few more cameras, most notably a 4x5 Polaroid conversion (a 'Razzle') and a Nikon F4...
I wanted to dust my shelves the other day & also the cameras I hadn't taken out to 'play' recently. I took my cameras off the shelves and placed them on the dining table. After a while it was starting to get a bit crowded. "Oh My" I thought, "Perhaps my Wife is right about me being a bit obsessed with collecting cameras!" Perhaps?! You think?!
Inspired by Mijonju's recent documentation of his collection and in no way a 'my collection is bigger than yours' photo, this was one way I finally managed to properly catalogue what cameras I had...(mind you after I took the shot I realised I had left a couple out, but I think you get the idea)

    Great collection! Be glad if it's only old cameras you collect. Old Jaguars are way more expensive.
