    Camera Short Story

    I ordered some prints from a local camera store for Mothers Day. When I went into collect there on the counter was an old film camera – (instant recognition)

    “Halina?” I asked.

    “Paulette Electric” he said “ My Dad’s, I’m just cleaning it”

    “My first 35mm camera”

    “His too”

    Putting it up to my face was bliss.

    “Does he want to sell it?”

    “No chance”

    “Oh well .. a memory shortlived.”
