Barbie 110 Camera

11

My first camera, rediscovered and now, I am using it again!

When I was a little girl I loved Barbie dolls. I collected a lot of them. When I was nine or ten years old, there was a promotion that we could send three codes of whatever doll´s box. I always have been very careful with everything, so I cut my boxes for the codes and sent them. Later, I receive at my home a very pink Barbie Camera. It used 110 film cartridges. It was very common in those years.

I remember I did only one film, because the photos were a disaster. The camera has no flash, so the photos were very dark. Years ago, I found this camera with other old toys in my bedroom. Me and my little niece tasted the camera again. So we got 100mm film. Now is a little harder to find.

The results were like going back to childhood, but now knowing that we don´t take photos indoor with this little pink camera.This camera is now on the same shelf where my Barbie collection were which is presently replaced by my beautiful camera collection.

    this reminds me of a Polaroid i had when i was 9; it was left by my friend who was moving away. i never used it because the film was too expensive (this happened in the early 2000s)

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part Two)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

    The photos were underexposed maybe because the film I used was already expired. But I'll try again and again, and will never stop trying new film.
