I had a radio set when I was a kid. It had buttons and switches. You could press on them and turn them and the receiver would make weird sounds. There was a wave with Morse code sounds. And I wanted to have my own receiver. I also really, really liked listening to vinyl records. They had fairy tale recordings. I just didn't get, how all of them -- the wolf, the rabbit, and everyone else -- fitted into this tiny record player.
I grew up and started to want a camera. It was also creating a fairytale. My first dream photo camera had nothing in common with what is considered a photo camera now. But, just to mention, it never appeared in my life. There were others. I shot miles, endless miles of film. Maybe that's why I started to collect old cameras. That would be okay, but I started to collect old radios, as well. Then I filled my living space with players and tape recorders. And now I have a lot of them. An insane amount.
In order to listen to Morse code, I needed one retro receiver, one retro player for vinyl discs and another retro tape recorder for audiotape. I shoot only with two retro cameras, and I have three more just for appearance. And all the rest has started to baffle in my living, breathing, loving. I'm parting ways with a part of my collections. If you like an item, tell me the price, and I'm likely to be happy with it.
