My First Camera

Sitting in my office this weekend, I glanced at my camera collection and realized that I was missing an example of my first camera. After some quick research, I discovered the exact model - the Kodak Instamatic X-15F. Google was also kind enough to let me know where to find one - Etsy. There were several great examples, and I ordered one (okay actually two) that included the classic yellow Kodak box, the General Electric Flip Flash II and instruction manual. 

With the rainy weather, I decided to give the X-15F a modern day photoshoot.
