Fleas Anyone?

The Grand Bend Flea Market..
is awesome. I've been going since I was little, and it just keeps getting better and better. Looking for a non-sketchy place to find sketchy things? Have I got a place for you! But seriously, it's pretty cool. Especially, for a photographer. I know this isn't a good example but, still. For the aspiring photographer, the GBFM holds all sorts of hidden treasures. One of the coolest being their collection of antique cameras. Certainly not something for practical use (usually) But they are really helpful for learning how cameras work, the history of the cameras, and to top it off, they look really cool. Now, don't get me wrong, that's just a tiny part of the GBFM. It's really pretty big, and photography is not a focus for anyone...unless you know where to look. So, if you have a free sunday between The May 2-4 and Thanksgiving, This is the place to be. Just wear something cool, cause it gets hot as all get out in there.

Photos of The Day: Theft

First, let me explain the title. What you are looking at is indeed a very old camera. So, because I took a picture of the light the other camera was capturing, it was stealing the other camera's photo, kind of. I couldn't really decide which of these photos I liked better, or if I liked either of them at all. Now that I've seen the potential of this little camera, I might take some time with it again. Try for a photo with a little compostion maybe.
