Sometimes the best camera is a gunOct 14 2010

Love this. In 1936, a 16-year-old Dutch girl played a shooting gallery game at the fair: hit the target and a camera takes a photo, which the girl receives as a prize. Almost every year between then and now, Ria van Dijk shot the target and got her prize.

Van Dijk is now 88 and still shooting.
