Last Friday night, while parked in the illuminated back yard parking space, my van was broken into and ALL of my kit stolen: Camera, lenses, tripod, meter ..... you name it.
It'll be hard to flog — who'd even know what it is, let alone how to show it or operate it.
The Police are on the trail and perhaps I'll be blessed with the return of the kit in the same condition as when it was whipped.
Meanwhile, I went to my friends' camera store on Tuesday and just two hours earlier they had received in a consignment sale of a pristine Mamiya C330 at the right price. I love the Mamiya TLRs and had been investigating getting one for some time.
Since moving into the small flat just over a year ago I have not been productive. Processing rolls will provide greater throughput and I might actually get back to making some pictures.
And yes, Barry K, it was the venerated Toyo that went.
