    Peggy; to be honest, I do not know if I or my wife Pauline shot this photo. I do not use digital cameras--only B&W film. So I struggled with a number of shots with her Olympus mega-pixel modern marvel... and then Pauline made a few shots. Then we uploaded the chip or whatever you call it and worked on several versions. This is the one we chose. Whether I fired the shutter or Pauline fired the shutter is irrelevant as this image was a collaberative endeavour.

    me-o-maya she's perty. one hangs my digital sellout and another my soul. Thanks for the comment on K1000. I couldn't agree more despite the slippery slope of digital I've slipped on.

    For the real antiques, look in pawnshops. Two bucks.

    I don't remember my Grandfather having any straps, at least not as colorfully decorated as this, but he did leave me all his cameras including one of the first polaroid ones...they now live in a dust free glass case in my home.....I had lights installed and do keep the doors closed, but I never let the lights go out....Jenny

    I have one like this that came with my canon ae1 when I bought her. Always wondered when and where it's from. It's the most beautiful strap in the world.
