I love cameras. So much so that I almost collect them. My family always jokes that I literally wouldn't be caught dead without one of my cameras, in fact they have threatened to put one in my casket when I die. What can I say? I love everything about cameras, especially the cool photos I can take with minimal skills now that they have cameras that pretty much do everything for a person. I digress.
For as long as I can remember, my Dad had this camera that came on all family vacations and I think it even went to work with him most days. I coveted that camera, with it's sleek leather, snap off cover and the cool burgundy, leather bag that held it. It had it's own smell. To this day, if I smell that musty, leather, dusty smell, I think of my dad and his camera.
That camera began my love affair with cameras and photography in general. Lately I've been thinking of getting a new bag for dad's old camera and re-purposing his vintage camera bag. It would make a cute purse. I've seen some cool bags online and am inspired to dress mine up a bit. What do you think?
I'm sure dad wouldn't mind.
