For some odd ball reason, I decided to rummage through the old prints I could find from back in the day of working with newspapers. It was really weird looking at things that had not been touched in 20 years. Anyway, I found an early self portrait that doubles as a portrait of a camera!

Hey, you were pretty good, even "way back when"! :-D

What a tough challenge. Where is everyone going to find a camera?

It'll be an exercise in creativity to do something more that just a decent shot of a camera. I've got some ideas I've been rolling around in my head that I didn't get around to doing for other challenges.

I have a great idea and have been working on the setup for the last 2 nights but my stumbling block is getting a 2nd camera. I have a call in to a couple of friends to see if I can borrow theirs for the evening tonight but so far no luck.

Not a problem here. I have a fair collection from antiques to stuff I used when I was a kid, to recent models. My problem is too many. If you lived nearby, I'd be happy to loan you a couple.

Why do you need two cameras?? ;-)

I have to wait until after the challenge to answer that. :)

BTW - I did track one down. Picking it up at 8pm tonight and returning it to him by 11pm.

Max finally took an ok shot of me. Now I have a portrait of a camera for 20 years later...

Yah, ok, the first ones not really much of a camera portrait...i just thought the 20 year comparison was fun! Its weird, ya know? 20 years just go by in the blink of an eye...

Probably something in this challenge that he wants to duplicate/redo => Camera Self Portrait :-)

I finished mine up tonight (barring seeing something I missed). I am hoping the post processing I chose is appreciated since ...dang...I can't say right now. Well. Suffice to say I used some techniques that made the photo look rather un-DPC like. I sooo want to say more

Interesting stuff there but didn't see anything like my concept. I've given up on the whole duplicate/redo thing. It's all my own ideas from here on out.

OK, mines in. Whilst I'm happy with the image I'm not happy with the title so will probably change that before rollover.

Fingers crossed that it does well.

Why do I see this challenge just now?

Hmm. I do have the time today.. :D

I'd sure like to redo that one... at least the ribbon part! It's my one and only, and will probably always stay that way :)

I must have nearly two dozen cameras ranging in age from 1918 and every decade except the 20's since, and I don't have an entry!!
