Rollei

Last year, after i was researching a local estate sale online, i saw a camera i was interested in that was pictured in one of the photos for the sale. Needless to say, i had a dream about that same camera prior to going to the sale and basically dreamt that i put a bid on the camera at auction and won. I actually dreamt the exact amount i won it for and everything. So, you can imagine that was a good dream. And very strangely, it came true. We went to the estate sale and the camera was still there on the 3rd day, and went up for auction. I bid on it. The exact amount in my dream. And won. It was a vintage Rolleiflex camera and was oh-so beautiful. I was eager to put a roll of film in it and started shooting. It took a while to use the film but i finally finished the roll and finally got them developed. It turns out that the roll sat so long that it messed with the color of the photos, but i think they’re pretty dreamy. Check it out for yourself….Oh, and real quick, be sure to follow the HelloSweetWorld blog on bloglovin’ and facebook! We’re finally getting connected with technology.

  1. I’ve always dreamed of owning a Rolleiflex! They’re gorgeous. I wouldn’t say it’s because the film sat too long. I think you just need to change the exposure setting because it’s letting too much light in. You can see it in mine as well where I underestimated how bright it was: http://www.studiomme.com/2012/the-camera-that-time-travels.html

  2. Those are really cool pictures! The age of the film makes the photos look much older and it is really cool. Glad to see all the blog posts too.
