|It's bordering on a waste of film to try and take photographs with these
old box cameras, but I like to push my luck a bit. Generally speaking
these cameras were at their best on a bright day - so naturally I took
this one out on a cold drizzly day....
No one seems enthusiastic enough to try this fairground ride, even though it offers a small amont of cover from the weather.
Photographically... well it's sort of in focus. It has a period charm.. and the exposure wasn't too far out. So, bearing in mind what it is.... I feel it's performed as expected

This Agfa Box camera was built in the heyday of the ocean going liners. Today's cruise liners lack the lines of their forefathers though.. rather too slab sided for my taste. Looks like a container vessel to me!
