Carol's Camera by JessicaRoman Carol's Camera by JessicaRoman
My Mom is a nurse who takes care of an elderly couple.
This camera was owned by the woman, Carol.
She has about five of them, and knows about my love of photography.
Carol is fighting dementia. I do love visiting her and listening to all of her stories and going through her thousands of pictures (many of them taken with this camera) even though she forgets sometimes which ones she has already told me. She has traveled all over the world, and the story of her life is fascinating to me.
Despite the fact that using this camera is going to be a bit of a task, I feel privileged to have a piece of her history in my hands.

They don't make the film for these anymore, but you can buy film online. The problem is finding somewhere to develop it.

It's a Pentax Auto 110 - and was made between 1979 and 1985 - before I was born.

It is considered an "ultra miniature" SLR... and it's mega wicked.
I plan on testing it out as soon as I get the film. :heart:
