Alphabet Street


Years ago my godfather gave me a couple of his analogue cameras (you can see pics from the Canon Ftb here) and I've always used the older of the two. A few weeks ago I thought I'd give the Canon F1N a go, even though it probably needed a service and a good clean; it'd been kept in a camera bag unused and unloved for more than a decade. However, before sending it off for a costly spa treatment I put a roll of film in it to see how it worked and what do you know - it's in great shape! These "letters" are from my 'hood; there'll be three more to follow tomorrow (you'll see why I posted them separately).
Happy Friday and here's a little (ha!) Prince to get the party started :)
