It’s a toy camera with focus fixed and a cool fashion figure of a fruit juice box. Incognito shooting, here we come!
It’s a funny low tech camera, very light, small, easy to take in any pocket and easy to use, you only have to pass the film, point and shot. It comes with stickers in order that you glue at the camera, there are some interesting models of stickers. The first time i used it was with a Kodak Elitchrome 100 film and x-pro. The Sunny Fruit Juice camera have a plastic lens with cover wich produces a strange distortion very funny sometimes, like when i take building shots, trees or something straight. The viewfinder don’t shows exactly what you get in the photos and i was disappointed in some shot because i was expecting another result. This little toy have a ill-fitting back cover which produces some light leaks in almost all photos and i like when it occurs. It´s very amusing to go out thereabouts with this small box of juices that do photos, many people laughs and asks you what it is. It´s a camera for sunny days!

Photographer couple Ryan and Garovs Vergara, collectively known as "Everywhere We Shoot", found a Japanese 35mm compact camera (seemingly brand new, in box, and fully packaged) in a surplus shop in Manila. They didn't expect for the camera to be already used, though.
Once upon a time, Vancouver was an unknown port town, its downtown and east side streets ending at the waterfront, filled with commercial fish docks, cargo terminals, bars and cafes for waterfront workers and sailors. Flashback to a bygone point of this city's history.
