|I've been busy
I'm back. I've been busy. Some of it has been actual work that will pay money. What a concept! Last week Zoe was reading the free classifieds in the local shopper paper called Marketplace. She found a free piano. Whenever my 6 year old grandson Mike comes over he ends up on Zoe's piano. (Her grandparents gave it to her when she was 11.) We picked it up Sunday and delivered it. Zoe has a bunch of pictures I need to get from her and post.
One of the busy things has been adding more product to gordy's camera straps. I first added three new colors of thread: light brown, brown, and dark brown.
The cameras are my Zorki 3M, the Rangefinder Forum Pass the Camera Canonet, and a Kiev 4a. Ken Smith was on the Island visiting and we had a nice lunch. He is giving the Kiev to Blaine since it needs some shutter work and Blaine likes poking around in things like that. I'm done with the Canonet and Blaine happens to be next on the list. I need to drop that film off tomorrow.
The other product I added was neck strap pads. I took awhile to first figure out what shape they wanted to be and then how I was going to make it. I finally got my tools, figured out how to make templates, and it all worked! I prefer the straps without pads but some like that extra width. Now I've trying to figure out how to attach to medium format cameras like the Hasseblad, Salut-S, and Pentacon 6 that used grooved posts. Then wider neck pads, then...
If anyone out there has a camera that needs a strap go on over to gordy's camera straps and buy one or many. Get a good strap and help support my efforts here.
