Kodak, Brownie 127 roll film camera, c1953

English Kodak made from Bakelite, for 8 frames on 127 roll film. Not much more than a simple plastic box camera with rotund, and rather cuddly, styling. Despite an initial dislike of the thing, I've warmed to it recently - because it returns quite nice results. When put into the context of it's designed market, it was a good tool for the task. It's drawback was a small number of pictures from one roll of film. I have heard tales, possibly apocryphal, of a version produced in limited numbers known as the Albino, in which the white bits were black and vice versa.

Stuck at home and looking for a long read?

Of Our Own Device is a spy tale interwoven amongst true events culminating with the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989. Meticlously researched and utterly true to life, the book is very particular with its cadence. It is both spy and romance, but mostly a study of deceit, internationally, between friends, lovers and ourselves.
