The camera that started it all!

A few weeks ago I was looking online at vintage cameras and I came across the one that started my love for photography.

My dad had this camera in the 60’s and 70’s and I remember, as a small 6 year old, seeing it in the drawer. I was fascinated by the mechanics of it. It’s a Petri 7 Green-O-Matic, what a cool name!

I took photos with it as a small boy using Kodak Ektachrome film. A few years later, I took it on a school skiing trip and I dropped it and broke the lens off.

This one is sitting firmly on my shelf and I’m looking forward to running a roll of film through it!
