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.
