Brownie Target Six-20

This one was a gift from a friend, so I was really looking forward to trying it out. I finally got around to cleaning, touching it up a bit and respooling some film and took it out for some quick pictures over the weekend (I didn't want to spend too much time on them in case it didn't work at all). I got my photos back yesterday and was happy to see that it still works!

It was a bit of a challenge to use since the viewfinders are so small and only one of them works, the mirror is knocked out of place on one side. I had also expected it to take square pictures since that's what my other vintage camera takes so I was a bit surprised when I only got 10 pictures out of the roll, but once I got it developed it made sense. I hope to take it out again for more pictures soon.

Still here...

So this blog has been a bit neglected lately, but I'm still around and reading my blog list. I feel like I haven't been that busy but yet I've been somewhat behind on all my personal projects. I've been taking pictures for 52 Weeks of Blythe, but haven't uploaded them. I have a new vintage camera I need to clean and re-spool some film for, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I've only sewn a few basic things that are too boring to post. I started a second blog just for my scans from my vintage magazine collection, but haven't sat down and scanned much recently (hopefully this weekend, though). And since I haven't managed to actually finish enough of anything, posting has been light.

However, I bought my first Blythe in over a year (Rachel's Ribbon) and I'm really looking forward to taking some pictures of her. Hopefully that will get at least some of my motivation going again.

(updated 3/19 - I finally added some more pictures of her on flickr)
