Who loves Brownies? We all do at our house.
So, I thought I would try an experiment with one of the most popular Brownies ever made, the Kodak Brownie Hawkeye. This one happens to be my grandma’s 1953 Hawk Flash. I never remember seeing it growing up but my mom can remember her parents using it when she was a little girl.
I have never really been a film photographer, but thought it would be fun to see what would happen during a family camping weekend with my mom & dad and the Brownie Hawkeye.
So, after 50 years in a box, I did some research and found brownie-camera.com. I then took the camera completely apart (all 6 screws) and cleaned it. Then I ordered some film from the Film Photography Project and went camping.
I think even if all the photos come out bad, it has created some neat memories as my mom talked about different things she remembered as a kid.
Now, it’s waiting time while the film is off to The Darkroom film developing company. I will be posting another blog with the prints.
Till then, nervously waiting…
