We went to a Photographic market with the Boetster.
Of course I couldn't resist a couple of "new toys".

I knew it would be dangerous to go to one of those Camera-flea markets. not having been a collector I was surprised to find how cheap they were.
I've decided to stick purely to "Kodak Brownie", that way I'll not end up with an attic full of the things.

Oh, excellent! I need to take after the old Petri some more one of these days - the timer mechanism on it is shot, and the mirror needs replaced. DH managed to fix the focusing ring on the telephoto though :-).

There is a box brownie like the one in the lower shot that used to belong to my mother. I think it takes 120 roll film (which is still quite easily available). Have fun!
