Random Junk In Valley Antique Stores

We are always looking for mismatched chairs, decent record players, and random old cameras like My Nikon FG. As such we tend to wander about thrift & second hand stores, as well as so called “antique stores” threw out the lower mainland.

I heart the green and orange cups mostly because when I was a kid we would go to my granddad’s for coffee and he would give me hot chocolate and cookies via one of these very same cups.

I recently just bought one of these egg beaters which (involving a long story) also takes me back to my youth.

I heart junk it makes such great photo fodder. However, we came home empty handed.

This was also the first real world test of auto uploading via the EYE-Fi Card and it seemed to work rather well. I am not uploading every single photo I take because that would be silly. I often shoot at silly low apertures of 1.2 and such so focus can be a bit of a tough one, so I take a few to be sure that what I want is in focus. But other then choosing what photos make it to the internet I am not editing. Which is funny because it makes me really realize that I always take photos slightly slanted to the right. I know this & I will often fix them in post. God times anyway when I get a chance i will play with the flickr API and see what fun ways I can display them to the world :)
