Love the ttv. I'm still working on finding a twin reflex lens camera so I can try it out. Yours look great.

Thanks Kim. My daughter and I searched our little town all day for a camera on Saturday. We lucked out at the last place - they had two. I got them both. They have a lot of them over at eBay.

Very cool pic, I've never seen one of those before.

So beautiful! At first i thought you processed it that way, but now i see that it was the camera. Very cool!

I, too, thought you processed this photo - until I read the comments. Nice shot!

Fantastic photo. I love the angle this is taken at. Very much an art piece as opposed to just a picture.

Nicely done!

Ciao

Thanks everybody. The process is called Through the Viewfinder or TTV. You shot the slr camera down through a cardboard light-blocking tunnel device that is attached to an old camera, like a Duaflex. The Duaflex works as the lense and the dust and wear on the lense makes the photo more textured and interesting. It's fun! Let me know if you are interested in finding out more details - there's a lot of info out there and I can steer you toward some. :D

That's the camera that did that? I was about to ask but I'm glad I saw the comments first; very cool!!
