My First Toy Camera…

110 film269 (800x639)Lomography Wednesday: My First Toy Camera

The first memory I have as being a photographer was when I was roughly 8 years old. McDonalds had these amazing neon 110 film cameras that came with the Happy Meals at the time. Me and my brothers had all the colors, green, pink, orange, you name it. For a few years we use to take photos of everything, and take them with us around with us on our summer trips between our divorced parents. Our parents even after the free roll that came inside the camera was done would buy more film for us to continue to use them. I had really no idea that my mom had bothered to get the film developed but the memory of these cameras had always stuck out in my mind. I remember when I found these though, I was so happy. I was looking through old photo that my mom kept in boxes in our basement when we lived in Calgary during the end of my high school and I came upon unopened developers enevlopes and out came these wonderful 110 prints. I had compeletly forgot myself that I had actually liberated these from her basement so many years ago until two weeks ago when I was looking for photos for my “The first time I took your photo…” meme. Thought I’d share a little slice of my childhood memories of photography. This is a collerbaration effort between myself and my brothers Corbin and Tyler (the ones of all of us as kids were taken by my grandmother) though becuase it’s almost impossible to remember who took what.
