Collecting the camera…

Leicalady and I were not even married when we started collecting cameras. Obviously Leicas were always high on our list. That being said, we really enjoyed searching out relics regardless of make, model or value. I imagine we now have in excess of one hundred cameras in our collection, twenty five percent being Leicas. We have collected all sorts of photographic memorabilia over the years ranging from cameras, accessories, films, books and darkroom equipment. Our house might as well be a museum…IMG_2491Some have value only to us…IMG_2471Some are just interesting…IMG_2474Leicalady has several favorites…IMG_2598And I love them all…IMG_2591
