…growing on my fence…
And to show you just how tiny they are…
Trevor wanted to take some pictures of them, too!
All taken with my iPhone 4s and olloclip macro lens.
So named because the “puffs” have little black seeds with a white heart shaped spot inside.

Doesn’t look like a weed to me at all!
The third in my collection of vintage cameras is this Yashica A from about 1958.
It is a medium format 120 film TLR (twin lens reflex) camera and features twin Yashimar 80mm f/3.5 lenses. It has a Copal rim-set shutter, with shutter speeds of 1/25, 1/50, 1/100, and 1/300, and apertures of f3.5-f22. The picture size is 6x6cm.
With 120 film still available, and labs able to develop it, I decided to order a roll of film and try it out. As of this writing I have not yet finished the roll though, so stay tuned for the results. I hope!! This camera is manual everything and doesn’t even have a light meter (and I don’t have a hand-held one either) so it’s all pretty much guess work.
Please excuse the picture overload, I just couldn’t narrow it down any more
This photo was taken by my daughter Sara when I let her play with my Nikon.
Found this beauty when we drove through Everglades National Park one evening. It was worth getting eaten alive by mosquitoes while getting a few shots.
First time I had ever seen a white passionflower…
The second in my collection of vintage cameras (although I don’t quite consider my Minolta XG-1 a vintage camera, as it’s from the early 80′s) is this foldable Kodak 1A Autographic camera.
From what I could find out, it was manufactured between 1917 and 1924 and the original list price was $21.
It takes autographic 116 film, which unfortunately isn’t available anymore.

You may have seen my post of the photos I took of a friend’s vintage camera. I’ve since acquired my own little collection of vintage cameras. This one was really the first one of the collection. Hubby bought it in the early 80′s but it spent many years in storage and I always assumed it didn’t work. When I found out that it DID in fact work, I “confiscated” it and started using it. There were even several lenses, too, and I acquired quite the collection of filters. I had so much fun with this little camera, it still works now….and I still consider it mine
I’m pleased to say that The Daily Click is now once again…..daily!
It’s good to be back (I think!)
… just long enough to take some pictures of it before it went off to its new owner
(I think I’m in love… no… I know I’m in love! ♥)
…in the making of these photos.
Some of you may remember this post from last year. Well, I finally got around to doing a little experiment and was quite pleased with the way it turned out. Thankfully it didn’t burn as fast as I thought (or was afraid) it would, and I had several shots to choose from. I was also afraid that I would have to sacrifice my favorite cookie cutter (not that I actually ever make cookies with, it’s strictly for photography purposes ) but thankfully it’s still good as new.
…and all that’s left are the charred remains of my heart
Once again I have to thank Brian for his help. Not with editing this time, but settings advice….even though I almost regretted listening to him and shooting in RAW. Thanks, friend
