World Toy Camera Day
World Toy Camera Day, an annual event that celebrates the absurd photo-taking abilities of old toy cameras, is celebrated annually.
Becky Ramotowski was inspired to create this idea by Pinhole Photography Day because, quite frankly she felt that there weren’t enough horrible nostalgic images on the Internet.
The creator created a website dedicated to 120 and Polaroid film cameras, which are low-fidelity, blurry-picture-spewing cameras. The website features prominently the flagship Holga and Diana cameras, which are mediocre toy cameras of average quality. This is in an effort to encourage amateur photographers to share their amazing low-quality creations.
Celebrate WTCD by searching your children’s rooms for a Brownie camera that has seen enough sillyness to last a lifetime. Take photos from dawn until dusk to capture one identifiable composition that you can share with the folks at www.wtcd.org.
