today my father gave me his first camera.
it's an Agfa ISO-Rapid IF. he bought it around 1965. that's ten years before i was born! it won't be of much use to me, but that's not the point. it was very nice of him that he wanted me to have it. i believe the camera still works, but if i ever want to use it, i'll need some special rapid film that used to be produced by agfa. i don't think it's still available.

so i have five(!) camera's now. yes i should get out more.. :p

two photos i took a couple of weeks ago:

this is marjolijn. she has been too silent for too long..

Nice Camera. I am not sure about the filstock, but I think on the Science channel I once saw a show about film, and there was a guy that specialized in old filmstock. Sorry for the tease, but I will try to find info if i can.

Yes, beautiful girl, lovely pics- as usual from you...

oh i don't know if i should bother to get film for this one. it's a very simple camera. i looked it up, the original price back then was $15.75..

Lovely pictutes and Marjolijn is very very pretty. I would love to shoot her myself. I added her and let her know, just so you know.

As if we need one, I guess that makes for a good excuse to meet for a coffee when I am next over in the Netherlands.

I keep lookimg at thos epictures and feel really inspired to photograph her and make the most of that beauty. It makes me feel all creative...

I don't understand how you took these pictures, is that not her arm leaning out of the frame, holding the camera herself?
Feb. 21st, 2006 03:42 am (UTC)
i don't remember what she was reaching for exactly, but it was me who took the photos.. :p
