from alabama.

the buzzer just went.
“hello?”
“hi, yah, is this dani kreeft’s place?”
“yes….”
“it’s canada post. i have a package for you.”

i bound down the stairs, signed and bound back up.
to open this.

a vintage yashica.

from the japanese camera manufacturer.
birth in nagano, 1949.
death of all production, 2005.

it was a friend of a friend’s in alabama. his grandfather had passed it down to his brother, then him, and now, to me.

i’m honored. and stoked. and can’t wait to get some fresh film in this old bird and listen to its shutter sing.
