Weekly Giveaway: Antique Camera

CLOSED - see here for winner




Last week's winner: #17, Amanda!
Congratulations! Please email me so we can sort out where to ship your print.



Wow, I am seriously jealous of whoever wins this one. Stacey has generously offered to donate an antique (1950s) Rolfix Jr. Deluxe camera.
Can I share an obsession of mine? It's vintage cameras. Right now I only have one (insert sad face here) and I love it to death. This... this is just too cool. Think of the possibilities! Decorating, photographing... the list goes on and on.
Ships within the US only; sorry to my international readers!

look at this amazing thing!


{well, perhaps not artist so much as very generous human being...}

Tell us a little bit about yourself. About me? Well, my name is Stacey. I love photography, reading, singing, cooking, and blogging. I am a Christian, dedicated to and dependent entirely on God for everything. I love capturing the beauty of the world through photography. If you want to know more, check out my blog :).

What inspires you? Wow, that's a really broad question. I could go on for pages about what inspires me. Inspiration is essential to produce any sort of exceptional outcome. As far as photography is concerned, I am of course inspired by great photographers like Florian Ritter, Thomas Kettner, Zhang Jingna, and so many more. But inspiration can be found anywhere- I'm inspired whenever I go outside, in the beauty of the world around me. And that, I think, is why I love photography. The world itself inspires me, dares me, to try to capture its mystery and beauty in an image. And that inspiration is why, though I'm no great photographer yet, I keep at it.


please comment once for each entry.
the winner will be announced at the top of next week's giveaway.

  4. Aah, I have had many obsessions but my current one is probably making *cough cough* uh, magic wands. No not out of wood, but out of paper, stuffed with newspaper. Then we paint it and add some gold or bronze accents and voila! You have a magic wand! And let me tell you, they look pretty darn real;)
    By the way, I've been loving the new looks for Horsefeathers!
