New snaps with old cameras

February 17, 2019 Rutland, Vermont

The squares, the green house and the red house were made with a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flash model (circa 1950) and the 6x9s were with a Kodak Jiffy Six-20 (circa 1935). Film for the black & white pics is Ilford Delta (100 ISO) 120mm re-rolled onto 620 spools. The color film is Kodak Ektar (ISO 100) 120mm, rerolled. Both cameras in great shape, clean, none the worse for their age. Focus effect achieved by flipping the Hawkeye’s meniscus lens.
