100 Strangers Project #59 Scott

There is this great shop out in St. Jacobs, Ontario called Artefacts. It is one of the best salvage places I have been to. Quite a few of the eclectic items in my 1920’s house have come from here. I digress. Still on the touristy tour with family, I told them this was a must see for old Canadian items. As I walked into the shop, Scott spied my camera right away. Always happy to talk vintage cameras and film, I hopefully didn’t chew his ear off too much. Turns out that Scott has his father’s twin lens Rolliflex and his Hasselblad. Lucky duck! I politely reminded him to keep the cameras in use so that they don’t seize.

Scott also mentioned that they sometimes find old cameras in the houses while they are salvaging. Hello? How can people leave those things behind?

What I forgot to mention to Scott was the potential for me to develop any exposed film found in those cameras. Wouldn’t that make a great story when selling pieces off from a house? Hint, hint?

Here is a little video for you to see what an interesting character Scott is http://vimeo.com/40428519
