120

A holiday package arrived by post in the days before Christmas. The gifter, my dear old friend, has a knack for making parcels filled with magic, so we we were giddy to open it. And oh my, I bawled my eyes out when one bit of the contents fell into my lap – a Diana camera. A real, analog, 120mm film camera, and already loaded with film. The reasons for the outpouring of sentiment (mine) are too numerous to explain, but I shall say only my friend and the universe could have intuited the perfect gift for this time of life. Each frame of film is a tiny mysterious world waiting to be revealed through light and silver. Thank you friend, thank you sun, confluence, thank you happenstance.
