Cheap Shots II

Oh Ann Arbor Area Crappy Camera Club, how we miss thee! After all, it was you in such a short time that turned our curiosity of plastic cameras into a much enjoyed hobby.

We are thrilled to have our two images above in the Cheapshots II: Recycled & Reloaded Exhibition.

This was a really neat idea for an exhibition. Find a camera (crappy, of course) at a local thrift store, take some photos (film, of course), and then find a recycled frame to showcase your best shots. Both of the above photos were taken with a camera that hardly broke the bank. At 40 cents, the Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim was a true bargain. It continues to be one of our favorite "go-to" cameras.

Happy shooting & Happy New Year! :)

It's been a long time!

Sail away with me honey | I put my heart in your hands | Sail away with me honey now, now, now | Sail away with me | What will be will be | I wanna hold you now

Crazy skies all wild above me now | Winter howling at my face | And everything I held so dear | Disappeared without a trace | Oh all the times I've tasted love | Never knew quite what I had | Little Darling if you hear me now | Never needed you so bad | Spinning round inside my head ...

~David Grey, Sail Away with Me

*Just thought we'd post a little something before we all coast into the holiday season. We promise we won't sail away for too long again this time. We plan to be much more active on this blog, as well as on Twitter and Etsy. Stay tuned for upcoming details, posts and listings. Happy day to you and yours! :o)
