Antiques Derail Open Trip

On my way to the NSW Open in Parramatta yesterday, I decided to stop by at a couple of my favourite antique shops. There was plenty of time anyway, I thought. I never made it to Parramatta.

Instead, I spent a few good hours checking out some old cameras (being a novice collector) and ended up buying my first ever Olympus Trip 35's! Two of them in one afternoon. Happy about those. Then popping into the second antique shop, I spotted an old Yashica Electro 35 GSN! Gorgeous and in perfect condition, so I bagged that too.

I'll try and make it to Parra tomorrow - probably test driving one of my new old cameras. The Yashica's 45mm f/1.7 lens should work perfectly in low light and all for less than $100!
