Lest We Forget - No.2

...our photographic roots, that is.

No, these aren't display pieces...or relics. Not to this photographer. They are much loved working tools - although I admit the Brownie is a bit more a special case of sentimentality (but also something of a self-challenge).(*)

Out on a shoot together...
The Nikon FE Single Lens Reflex camera is wearing a Nikon Nikkor AI-S 24mm f/2.8 lens with yellow
filter (for black and white shooting). The cable release is attached to a newly reconditioned 1950s
Brownie Hawkeye, modified with tripod socket and cable release receptacle.
