IMAGES OF SMALL THINGS FROM THE BIGGEST COUNTY IN TEXAS #712 – OLD ROLLEIFLEX

I don’t quite understand the dynamics of photographers making photos of cameras, but it is a fairly common exercise.

While not fully comprehending the reason, I also jumped in on doing it. Thanks to my dad, I have a pretty nice collection of old cameras.

I was fortunate that my first serious camera was a “Rollei”. Mine was one that my dad, a German factory trained Rolleiflex repair tech, put together out of spare parts. It was a pretty nice rig. I still have it.

This old “baby Rollei” (it used 127 film as opposed to 120/220 for the full sized Rolleiflex)  was given to me after if had more or less survived a fire.
