More Daisies and Another Camera

A view from below of the daisy from yesterday.  I love this picture and really love the way the daisy looks at this angle.

The Brownie 620 is a black leatherette covered metal box with geometric design in black enamel and nickel chrome on front. It has two brilliant viewfinders and a shutter release lock.

Fun Facts:
This camera is abit of an oddity in that the box camera design was not manufactured in great numbers by Kodak AG in Germany. The cameras produced in Germany tended to be of a more intricate design, like the Kodak Retina cameras. Even this Brownie 620, with it's f/stop selection and close-up lenses, shows a degree of precision not found in many Brownie box models. Click here for more information about Kodak AG in Germany.
