I have a new favourite author and her name is Colleen Hoover
I have just finished It ends with us and I absolutely loved it. I dont do book reviews anymore so this sint going to be one but isntead I just wanted to sing her praises and let you all know what a great author I think she is.
I bought this on 29th November and finally finished it today. I wasnt reading it all the time i kind of dipped in and out but it always kept calling me back.
Imagine my thrill when in my local supermarket yesterday I came across these two beauties
I literally spoke out loud and said ‘Oh Colleen Hoover’ as i grabbed a copy of both books. I do hope no-one heard me!
Now, i’ve always had a passion for cameras for the last 50 years (yes i am that old) but all the cameras i’ve had have been contemporary for the time.
Now though due to a family member who has got himself involved in vintage photography having never owned a camera before (apart from his phone of course) I have become interested in vintage cameras myself.
We ventured to a local bootsale for the first time in months and found a stall which had trays of old vintage cameras! We searched through them for ages but the first camera i came across was this
A Kodak Retinette IIB made between 1958-1959. I just fell in love with it. It has a built in light and exposure meter and was top of this particular range for its time.
I next found a Kodak Retinette 1A which was actually made later (confusing numbering people?)
They each cost £5 which is a brilliant bargain as they can go for over £20 each on ebay and the like!
I’m hoping to get film for them and have a go at old fashioned photography soon.
