I had a surprise in the post today. A small package arrived with my name on it. It was quite heavy too. Strange thing was, I wasn't expecting anything. I had not ordered anything, or bid for anything off Ebay. So I was a bit mystified as to what it could be. A late birthday gift perhaps?
Mind you, Gail had mentioned something earlier in the week, that she had got me something that she didn't know whether I would like it or not. So could this be it?
It was well sealed up, so it took me a little while to undo the box. Gail was watching me whilst I opened it. I felt inside. Something metallic. I put my hand in and pulled out a black box. What Is it I asked. Gail just smiled.
I then realised that it was an old fashioned camera, as the bellowed lens popped out. Gail said that it did work, but she thought it could be used as a prop on a photoshoot.
At the moment, I have a book from the library all about old cameras. So I had a look to see if I could find it. Yes, it was there. Page 26, a Zeiss Ikon Nettar 515 from 1937. It takes 120 film. So I will have to see if I can buy some and see if it works or not. I'll post some if it does.
