Kombi Camera from 1892

Dinosaur from Kombi Camera
This photo was taken with a Kombi Camera from 1892. Seriously, 1892. Isn't that nuts!? My Uncle Bill gave me the camera. :)

This is the Kombi. It is actually one of the first roll film cameras. More on it here.

120 + Kombi + Dinosaur
So there isn't really any usable film around from 1892 I used some 120 film that my professor gave me and cut it up to fit in the Kombi.

Film template for Kombi
Template for the film. I had to cut the film totally blind in COMPLETE darkness and then slide the film in the camera. It was difficult, but doable. I love camera hacks!

I put tape over the lens before I took a photo because I didn't want any light to leak in when the shutter is being cocked.

And the result! I am in a photography class this semester so I was able to use the dark room to develop my pictures. I recommend taking film photography. The dark room is great. :)

On another camera note-- today was parent's day at my school and we went to a little town called Rockville.

Rockville, Indiana

We went to this antique store and my dad bought me THIS CAMERA!!

It made my day. My dad usually disapproves of my collections but I guess he thinks this hobby is OK. Thanks for the camera, Dad. You're the best. :)

Brownie Hawkeye + Dinosaur
Janet, my dinosaur, loves the Brownie. She's got good taste.

Great day. :) Can't wait to work with the Kombi more.

Leather Pennant Necklace

DIY Pennant Necklace

Pennant Necklace
I saw a necklace like this on Rebecca's blog a long time ago but I cannot seem to find the photo again! It was really simple, I found little leather scraps, cut triangles, poked holes, and threaded them through an old necklace.

Painted Converse
Also, these Converse shoes used to be pink. I had them in 7th grade but I haven't worn them in a while because pink is not really my thing at the moment. Now I wear these shoes ALL THE TIME again.
