two cats

The Ansco Rediflex bubble top viewfinder comes standard with a black vignette mask that borders the edge of the viewfinder--because the edge distorion is quite extreme. When you find these cameras, fifty years later, somethings that mask is missing or oddly skewed.

For this contraption, I removed the mask and embraced the distortion that becomes most pronounced when the subject is near the edge, like these pair of cat ears.
