A selfie and a few books
Still mostly in bed because of a cold so here are two recent photos from home. Found an old camera, can't remember where I got it. Decided to take a photo of it and it came out as a fun selfie. Westex was a medium format 120 roll film folding camera made by Beier for Westminster Photographic Exchange, London, UK back in 1939 so now you know that. The three books have a fun story to them. Years ago at a car show I met a guy who was there with a Corvette. I took a few photos of the car and we talked for a bit. Met him again the following year at the same event, that time he was dressed like an old time American gangster! I told him to set up a flickr account that first time we met so I have seen a few photos from him over the years. What I didn't know then was that he was a forensic scientist, working for the Swedish police. Now, a few years down the road he can also title himself crime writer. In the mail a while back was a package from the author himself. Three signed copies of his crime novels. Could come in handy as I am recovering from the cold.
