I was going through a lot of old boxes this past weekend and came across a lovely surprise - one of my dad's belongings.
An old Kodak Brownie No. 2.
I have yet to photograph mine, but it looks pretty close to this, with a few slight variations.
I've spent over 2 hours cleaning it, examining it and just fawning over it. It's a beautiful little...box, and I'm quite giddy at the potential that lies within it it.
I've already bought some 120 b&w film on ebay.
- 5 rolls of Ilford Hp5 400
- 5 rolls of Kodak Tmax 400.
Can anyone suggest a great and cheap lab?
Anyway to clean the glass myself?
Any other recommendations or suggestions?
Any way to do self-portraits with it?
I've heard that Ansel Adams' first camera was a brownie.
Just... fyi randomness.
Mmm. More film goodness.
I believe it was taken with a Mamiya, but I have no idea of the film.
