Kodak Brownie Starflash Camera Blue

6"x4" oil on raymar panel. I humbly present to you my other Brownie Starflash camera—I have only the two, red and blue. All I can say about this camera (especially with its flashbulb in place) is, "Blue, blue, blue, and more blue." When you look at the camera straight on, the entire chrome-ish flash dish thingamabobber goes entirely blue. Don't know why I chose to attack it straight on, maybe I was in the mood for self-inflicted torture or feeling up to the challenge of trying to see variations in all that dang blue. While the former reason is probably the truth—which speaks to my sanity or lack thereof—I like to think of myself as being up to the visual challenge. I know, it's delusional, but it's all I got.
