junk sale, golden half

I have now lived in Louisiana long enough to attend both the spring and fall outside sales at the Old Schoolhouse Antiques Mall in Washington, LA. I love taking photos of all the gorgeous old junk*. It has such great texture.

And I don't know why, but the awesome little Golden Half is a great camera for this locale. Something about junk really lends itself to the diptych. Either both images sort of go together (tarnished silver flatware and rusted metal headboards) or they don't go together at all (old dolls and bottles); either way it's a charming format. And I love the random spots of not-quite-in-focus you get with this camera.

*"Junk" is here used affectionately.
