Pack Rat

So At the end of the month my family and I are moving from the East Side of Salinas to the North Side of Salinas. Better house, better area (we think.) I'm a little excited and sad at the same time. I have lived in East Salinas my whole life, and in the same house since 1992 (except for when I was off to college) This old house has a lot of good memories and a few bad ones. Time for a new chapter in the Espinoza's life.

So I've dreaded having to pack and started this past weekend (yeah I know a little late, that's what I do.. procrastinate) Started with boxing up my old cameras and random stuff I have on the walls & shelves of my room.

I've always been intrigued by old cameras, and I've been lucky to collect a few over the years (many thanks to my buddy Flat Top Bob who sent me a few from Texas!)

Everybody should have at least one brownie, right?

This little camera actually still has film in it... develop?

I love the typography on the camera and the package design for the bulbs.

This little camera also still has 8mm film in it.

After packing my cameras (some of which I didn't photograph) I started to take down crap that I have all over my room, This is my "random box" that as you can see has very random stuff in it...


Little stuff I had on my shelf... random?

I found this nice little note thumb-tacked on a board Laurent, of french magazine Powerglide, sent us..

Looks like I have a lot to do before we move...

Good luck with the move! LOVE the Vanguard camera! I've done a little research on developing that old roll I have and no local lab will take it - all recommend sending it to rocky mtn printers in Colo (which does about $50.00 in damage to the bank account). So my big plan (when the corvair is done) is to set up a corner in the shop where I can at least process bw film.
