through the viewfinder

Since I've rekindled my love for photography.

I guess it is only natural I start looking into different types of cameras.

Have you ever noticed how cute and sassy some of the names are?

Starlet...

Brownie...

Swinger...

Hawkeye...

Not to mention they have such a wonderful design appeal as well.

I foresee a small collection of vintage cameras in my future.
