The prompt for Day 21 is “Treasure” and this is one of my most cherished treasures — my father’s first “serious” camera — a Rollieflex, twin lens reflex — given to him by my mother in the late 1950’s. He used it to take some of his best images — and there were many of those. I particularly prize his black and whites.
He was passionate about photography and he passed that on to me and my sister, Elena. I know we both feel very connected to him when we’re out with our cameras making images — a connection that transcends this dimension of space and time.
