Upon hearing the story of how my mom used to wait and get mad at Pappy, I can imagine him playing with the light meter and adjusting the lens. I can see him rechecking his light meter while my mom is getting huffy with him. And then I can hear that classic click. There, the photo is taken!
This blog entry is a little bit of a tribute to my favorite camera and to my grandfather. These photos were taken in July of 1973 while my mom, and, and brother lived down in Farmers, Texas. I know that most of these were taken in Arlington, but if the photos aren’t in Arlington, Texas, I’m sorry. I was never in Texas so I don’t know what landmarks belong where.
