The Simplest Camera...

Long before I became a "Nikon Girl" my tried and true camera was a little Minolta.

My 35mm Freedom Memory Maker was the simplest camera, and looking back, took really good pictures considering :-)

I remember going to the camera shop on a regular basis to pick up film (24 exposures) and then taking it in for processing and waiting days (often calling to see if it had been developed!)

... My children were little back then, so I was buying LOTS of rolls of film :-)

This camera has been on elementary school field trips, family vacations, walks to the park, school events, etc...etc... and never let me down. Not just the photos that bring back memories, but the camera itself which now sits on a shelf in my Studio.

as the simplest camera

Look and think

before opening the shutter.

are the true lens

It wasn't so long ago that I was still using a Minolta too -- in fact, a friend had given us a box of film so when I switched to digital, I had to find someone who could use all that film. Seems the weather is still back and forth where you are. Hope things continue to warm up. Best wishes, Tammy

I hope you can incorporate your little camera into a wall hanging or something to remind you of all those fun trips and events.
