    Great selection this Saturday! I read them all….love BrandiB’s theater story, that gal gets around! And, yet again, another twin-lens I’ve never even seen, and I’m a twin-lens guy that grew up in Chicago scouring the old photo stores, seems like I would have seen one from a Chicago company! That IS rare!

      Haha. Ordinarily, saying that a gal gets around isn’t very nice but I’ll take it as a compliment. Have a great day Andy!!

    Some good reading this week! Love the theatre especially. And I have a Canon EOS 500 on my shelf. Feels just like my EOS digital to shoot, would be a great starter for someone wanting to try film, it is great when a system has longevity!

      I love the early auto-everything SLRs as first film cameras for interested photographers!

    Speaking of old theaters, did you happen to get a look inside the Guyer Opera House on your way through Lewisville? I’ve driven past several times thinking it was a bar since the name and exterior are so nondescript.

      I did not. Maybe next time?
