This Christmas I have been whelmed by the thought and consideration that has gone into present choosing. I feel as though everyone has invested a lot of time when buying stuff.
Take this camera for example. A 1986-ish Pentax Zoom-70: My mum saw it in an op-shop window in New Zealand, and had the presence of mind to remember my Flickr and this blog, remembered that I loved old-cameras, bought it, stored it, sent it to me in England for Christmas.
Heck, it’s a £3 camera, but I’m over the moon. The thought that went into giving it to me [loud content sigh]… A test roll of Ilford FP4 is in it, fingers crossed, I’m in the back seat blogging.
