Old Stuff in my Mom's Garage, with 3 different cameras.

This Thanksgiving, I wandered out to Myra's garage to take pictures of some stuff. I used my current camera as camera #1, which has a bit too much shake for close ups, Myra's cool little Olympus (I think it's an Olympus) as camera #2,  and Jess' fancy-schmancy camera for camera #3. Mostly, I just like taking pictures of old rusty things. It was just fortunate that I had all those cameras at my disposal.

This is, I think, an oxen yoke. Or it might be for horses. I have no horses or oxen to try it on. It hangs in our garage and has been hanging there my whole life. This photo is with camera #1, with no flash.
By the time I made it to the garage with camera 3, it was dark outside, and I couldn't figure out how to turn off the flash, anyway.
 This is camera #2, and Dad's old ice skates.
 Camera #3, as evidenced by the flash.
 I'm kind of in love with close ups and strange angles. And old ice skates. And camera #3.
 Camera #1, and a banana box my parents "borrowed" from my grandparent's store. They're marvelous, and with a nice thick sheet of plexiglass they'd be awesome coffee tables. But my mother won't let me take them out of the garage. Which is probably for the best, since I don't have room for a coffee table.
Camera #3. I love that the box says "Fargo, N.D. St. Paul, Mn." and "return to warehouse promptly."

Mom's camera is a Canon as well so that means all three that you were using were Canon. Just so you know. Not trying to be critical!
