Me, My Dad & My Hawkeye ♥

This tried & true Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flash camera was given to me by my Brother who acquired it somehow from our Dad. Dad picked it up in the late 1950′s as a young, Dutch immigrant guy living & farming in Southern Alberta. Seeing that I love this camera so much and tote it around faithfully from country to country, I thought I would share with you some of my favourite Brownie Hawkeye photos from around the world.

I ♥ my Dad to bits and he’s going to be 70 soon, so in his honour, I’d like to show you a very cool picture of him from his younger days!
(Not taken with the Hawkeye unfortunately.)

PS – Recently Kodak asked me to do a guest blog post about my travels and my little piece of Kodak history.  Have a look!

Un Posto al Sole

Almost every day was a place in the sun in Italy last month. Ok, ok there were a few days of rain but there were still plenty of beautiful picture-taking days.

As usual, I was packing my Brownie Hawkeye, which has clearly become one of my most beloved cameras. Here are my 2 favourite Brownie shots from Italy.

Shanghai Morning

Ni hao! I woke up early on my last day in Shanghai and shot a roll of film with my very trusty Brownie Hawkeye Flash using Kodak Portra 800 film. The lens is still flipped and I’m still loving it! See below what Shanghai seniors are up to early in the morning! ☼

Copacabana & Christ the Redeemer

I took my trusty Brownie Hawkeye Flash with me to Rio de Janeiro this month. Armed with a roll of Fuji Pro 400H and the intention of exploring multiple exposures, I set off to see the Christ the Redeemer statue atop Corcovado mountain. As I was staying at a hotel in Copacabana, I had the opportunity to take 2 doubly exposed frames of the same scene: Cristo Redentor on Copacabana beach.

Brownie Hawkeye Maui Edition

You might have noticed, I like photography. All the photos on this blog are my own. Either created in the lovely natural light of my apartment or taken somewhere on the road, usually outside of Canada and occasionally somewhere on the lower mainland.

I recently rediscovered an old camera of my dads; a cool little bakelite box, the Brownie Hawkeye. After doing some reading I decided to load up some 120 film and shoot off a roll. I didn’t bother to clean any part of the camera thinking that I want to see what 50+ years of dust and history looks like. While I was happy enough with those first shots, doing this gave me some insight into the toy camera, its focal distance and exposure. Armed with a bit of knowledge, I decided to take it apart, clean it and flip the lens. Flipping the lens resulted in images with a softer, ethereal feel and a very sweet, defined focal point. I captured the following Maui moments with the next roll of film.
