I Love Vintage!

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

I LOVE vintage things! I LOVE photography! And I LOVE blending these two passions into a trip to thrift stores and flea markets to see what kind of fun things, and props I can find to use in my portrait sessions!! Some favorite recent finds are shown here... these wonderful vintage trucks and the fabulous vintage camera! These trucks have such wonderful substance to them, and I find myself wondering about what kind of life they've had... what children played with them. What was life like when they were made.. when they found their way into their little owner's hands...

These are the biggest hits for my sessions! Little boys just love them (and their dads do, too!)! They invite play and imagination... and make for some great shots!! And of course, what photographer and thrift store junkie could walk away from this great vintage camera?! I've heard they take some incredible black and white images. Now just to get it open and find the right film... and then maybe explore my little corner of the world with this baby in my hand! But always my eternal problem........... NOT ENOUGH TIME! I've decided I need about 5 more lifetimes to do all and be all that I want to do and be! So much to do, so much to learn, so much to explore, so much to be!

Oh... Where did I get these little vintage delights?? My little secret!! There is this really great place that I found here in Columbus, Ohio. They get these fantastic trucks in from time to time... & at a killer price!!! Ssshh! Can't tell!

Wow Joy tres cool!! I love the idea of props for the kids. Brilliant!
I found a vintage camera myself last week while shopping the antique stores. Best thing was it was only $7!
Course it seems to be empty inside so there won't be any photo taking with it. But my life is also like yours. Just not enough time.
Great finds!
