Love it!!!!

A few words missing in this text– it was MORE than twenty years old when I bought it: and I’ve probably NOT put more than a dozen films throughout it. photo 2

Finishing the film and the TLR . .

Just came across someone raving about TLR’s and remembered that about a year ago I put a film into mine and still haven’t finished it . . . there’s a phrase you don’t hear these days. This is my Yashicamat 124-G-  -it’s beautiful to look at and it makes a wonderful click sound: and the crank handle to wind it on is truly engineering at its finest! In fact, I think I may draw it later on today . . .

Olympus TRIP 35

This was my father’s camera. Whilst I was developing my interest in photography, I persuaded my father to buy a Yashica rangefinder camera. I don’t think he really understood, why he needed one. He didn’t, but I wanted one. After I’d left home to go to university, the next camera he bought was a simple and classic  ‘point and snap’ Olympus TRIP 35. Funny that . .
