A recent trip to California resulted in a wonderful surprise! It seems that my father remembered some obscure reference I made a year ago that I was looking for a certain old camera. On a recent trip to his local flea market, he found these…

I’m touched that he remembered my search for an operational Rolleiflex, and giddy that he picked up the Ricohflex as well for what he referred to as “decoration”. Now I need a little instruction from my favorite photographer, Jed, who turned me on to these wonderful cameras to begin with several years ago.

THANKS DAD for the VERY early birthday present. I’ll always think of you when I use or admire them!!!
