It has finally arrived.
My Momma asked me a few months ago if I was interested in my GrandFather's old Kodak Retina iiiS.
I asked her if she was kidding, was that even a question???
There is such an incredible story attached to this camera....
And it has totally captivated my whole heart and mind.
It is a 1957 camera and just after my parents got married, my GrandFather gave it to them as a gift. Apparently he only used it for his Black and White photography. I'm considering using it in the same way. I've downloaded the user manual and I'm looking for a cover for it.
What I'm loving... is finding out that my family was into photography.
They were picture storytellers... and quite frankly I can't wait to continue telling stories with this.
It is heavy to hold but in a good way. I can already see my girls fighting to use her.
When we opened it to see where the spool goes - we found a spool in there... we exposed the negative but I"m going to get it developed this weekend - who knows what we will find.
But otherwise this weekend will be a weekend of play and learning.
I am definitely going to need Corks help.
