Day 307, 365 Day Project

Using the new to photograph the old. This is my old Crown Graphic which was always fun to use. It is amazing how these camera's were the work horses for photojournalists back in the 40's and 50's. Weegee was a master with it creating some of the great images of life in New York City. He would shoot at all hours of the evening and developed his film out of his trunk and still managed to scoop most of the other photographers of his time. It was a labour intensive process and when you see what we have to work with to day it is amazing what he (and other's of the time) were able to do. Now I commemorate this old work horse using an iPhone, processing the image with instagram, and posting it in minutes.
