For info, those cameras on my shelf are a Lubitel 166B, a Diana F+ ‘El Toro’, a Diana F+ ‘Tori Amos’ and a Nikon F50. Not shown in this shot is the Pentax P50 I used to take it with. So yes, my shelf is pretty humble, actually.
Now let’s see yours…!
Every time I visit a Lomographer’s profile page, I scan their ‘Camera Shelf’ section to see what kind of gear they’ve got. It’s gotta be said, many of you have got a seriously impressive shelf, with a long list of obscure and wacky cameras that I read with respect – and yes, a healthy dose of jealousy too ;-) But hey, I would much rather actually see those glorious cameras than just read a list of their names, wouldn’t you…? I mean, I don’t know what the hell a Zeiss Ikon Box Tengor 54 looks like, do you? OK, so @gauthierdumonde does, ‘cos he’s got one. (But he’s Belgian and weird, so he doesn’t count – only kidding, my friend! :-)
So c’mon, show us your treasures: line up all your cameras and accessories – yes, all of them, whether it’s 5 or 50 – on a shelf in your apartment, house, garden shed, houseboat, igloo, yurt, cardboard box or wherever the hell it is you crazy cats live, take a shot of them, upload the shot to your home and post a link to it in the comments below so we can see those beauties. (And then I can go away and sit quietly in a corner with a bottle of Stolichnaya and cry like a girl because my own shelf is so pathetic in comparison – Sniff!)
I’m waiting with great anticipation, friends… ;-)
