Ansco Shurflash

These were all taken with an Ansco Shurflash box camera. CE Nelson started the project on to send the camera to all 50 states and have different photographers take pictures and then send the camera on. I happily represented the Oregon leg of the tour and hope to help out with Washington State. The camera is made of cardboard, has one shutter speed and one aperature opening.
