The other night I went out for dinner minus the child and my sister looked after aforementioned child. When I got home she said there’s some stuff on the table that JJ might be interested in. One thing was a tiny little digital camera that can take 25 photos and has the resolution of about 1 pixel. It’s probably more than that, but not much. Apparently she got it with some catalogue shopping she did and it has no brand name on so I have no idea what type it is.
After I found a battery for it he snapped the 25 photos in about two minutes and they look kind of cool so I thought I’d share. First of all though, is a photo that I took of this little camera.
Here’s some photos that he took and they’re completely unprocessed. I just uploaded them to Flickr.
What a cute little camera!
He took some cool pic, they look great in the small thumbs in your flickr widget. Very artistic! Love the first self portrait..and of course you can’t forget the good old Vegemite *hehe*
Sometimes those cheap little cameras can be a lot of fun because you have no pressure to take an actual good photo but then because of your abandon some absolute little gems can come out of it.
I used to carry this semi-cheap camera in my bag and as I would walk to work just take random shots without looking through the viewfinder just to see what random things I would pick up and whilst a lot would be quite average there was the occasional find.
So I think these shots are well worth the effort as they capture slices of life and points of view – the self portrait is awesome!
Stunning! I still use my “came with the stationery at work” camera and it produced some wonderful pics of Amsterdam — all slight out of focus and impressionistic views across the canals.
But — the good news — I’m getting a real proper one for my birthday in June (the kids seem to think that Mum reaching 65 without having murdered them is something to celebrate).
I’ll be back for the instructions on how to use the bloomin’ thing.
PS. Off to the British Library now — in the pouring rain of an English April.
very cute – JJ will have fun with that
