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 . . .
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 . .
