Camera

Thanks to today's adventures, the Eastbourne charity shop count has climbed to a massive 19. One of the two we visited today was a little store selling only bric-a-brac. We picked up a Brownie 127 camera for a couple of quid and ogled a polaroid camera.


Unfortunately, post purchase research found that the Box Brownie camera will have to function purely as an (very lovely) ornament as the film is no longer in production. Bah humbug.


Then head over heels I fell as I followed Bobby's gaze to a beautiful and fully functioning early 1900s Singer sewing machine. Alas, how I would go about getting it half way across the world in five months when I go back home, I have no idea. So, as it is, I'm in love and yes I'd rather no longer talk about it please.

If it's any consolation, I see quite a few of those singer machines of that era around the outskirts of sydney/wollongong. It will happen...in good time.

Thank you, knowing they're quite common calms my soul a little.

It's possible you can adapt some other film to work in that camera.

Thank you for the tips (and comments) folk. Shall definitely look further into film. We went back for the polaroid camera a couple of days ago too. x
