Anybody else here into toy camera and box camera photography?

I love the use of cheap cameras (although none will ever surpass my love for my good old pentax K-1000).  They're far underrated in my opinion.  Sometimes simplicity is best.

Some of my favourites that I've taken:

Taken with a holga:

My windsor (a diana clone):

And the box cameras:

Woman, these are fantastic!  I agree with what you said about the good ol' Pentax, but these are incredible.  You have talent!  Thanks for sharing...

I get some kinds of film (that aren't too easy to find) on freestylephoto.biz, and the rest of my film comes from local professional photography stores.

Wow. Those are beautiful! Have you ever experimented with making your own pin hole cameras?
