Film Camera: 1961 Sportsmaster 35mm

When my London native friend Sam took me shopping at the Notting Hill markets he bought me a vintage camera called ILFORD Sportsmaster. After, we tried to open the camera to load up film and found that it was nearly impossible. That night we went out to dinner and asked everyone who was sitting at the table to give it a try. No luck.

Last week I was showing my boyfriend my vintage camera collection. When I looked away to grab another camera, Gus was holding the London camera open. I laughed and told him no one could open it.

I loaded up the camera and took it for a test drive. There are still a few things I don’t understand about the camera but thank goodness for Google. I found the owners manual. Maybe my next set will be better. I do enjoy how magical film makes the world look, almost dreamy like.

    1. My blog really took off once I was freshly pressed. Which means one of my post made it to wordpress.com home page. I think the best part of blogging is meeting new people with similar passions.

  1. As a website owner. Do you truly feel like owning a site or
    perhaps internet site is sensible? Also how does one get visitors to have a look
    at your website or blog?

    1. You really have to be passionate about blogging. It takes time and creativity to keep your audience interested. And its not about numbers, its about connecting with people.

  2. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m
    having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
