One of the windows of Selfridges in London has been filled with old cameras to advertise some make-up or something. But I was stopped in my tracks when I spotted my very first two cameras ever! Well, the box brownie was my dads but I used to fiddle about with it as a kid. The little beauty that really caught my attention was the Kodak 127 snuggled away amongst some bigger boys. It was about as basic as you could get and I loved it. Just a plastic box which took 127 film, obviously; point and press the white button and then wind on to the next number. That was it - no knobs, dials or screens - Brilliant! I used it as a teenager and one of my first pics was of the cover of the Beach Boys "Pet Sounds" LP. Ahhh, happy days.
