view finders

old school!

Walking around the Marais on Saturday morning, I ran into a table selling old view finders. I was so surprised having even seen these, I just had to take a picture. When I was little, I used to play with a big cylinder full of round viewfinder disks and a red View Master at my grandparent's house. I'd point the disk towards the window, and see pictures of Donald Duck at the Taj Majal and the Great Wall of China. Having not seen or given any thought about them for years, seeing these brought back some good memories, hahaha. 

I wonder if kids even play with these anymore nowadays? If not, they're missing out. 

On another note, I'm going to Nice for the 3day weekend! Its fall break here- keep in mind there is no Thanksgiving (or Halloween either, for that matter). In fact, there are no major holidays in between Bastille Day in July and Christmas- no wonder there are Christmas decorations up already. I'm going with 3 other girls from my program, and we'll be hitting up Nice, Monaco, and St. Tropez. I can't wait!
