Oohhwwee

o! When I was in Germany earlier this year, visiting my gran, I found and was given an old camera(tah, Oma) . A lovely old Agfa Click 2.From what I can gather, this is a plastic toy camera, medium format (120 Film), made in Germany during the 1950's, not unlike the ever popular Holgas and Diana's barring the light leaks and stuff. Anyway. So when i came back home I dug through the fridges in the backyard and found two rolls of b/w 120 film, both expired in 1992 (typical of my dad) but i was eager! So i loaded one and got at. Camera feels wierd, quite chunky in my hands but still nice. So i took some photos. Some at the beach at Pringle Bay one day, some at Strand, some in Cape Town and some of Pedro the cat. Then i forgot to have them processed. Then i remembered! Long story short, here are a few of them which i quite like. Just getting to know the camera but i like these photos. For a better look (im not so good with blogger yet) check out my flickr.

My Favourite one, Strand Beach, I love how eerie it looks
