Using a 100 year old camera

Being stuck indoors more than I would prefer recently has had a profound effect on the amount of time I've been able to dedicate to hobbies old and new (AKA buggering-around-in-the-garage). I recently passed my 30th birthday (*groan*), for which my partner very kindly bought me a near 100 year old Kodak No. 1 Pocket camera. I would have been very happy just having this photography relic as a decoration, but I have now managed to get some photos out of it! There were a few versions of these old folding cameras from Kodak, but here is the version that I have from somewhere around the 1920s. 

Be More Dog


Man's best friend... or genetically modified killer with Stockholm syndrome? Either way my Mum's new cocker spaniel is delightful and loves bounding around. But as my Mum says, "he ain't half a handful at times!"

It can't be a bad life living on chardonnay carrots and branded jelly beans. I can't help wonder if the canine race are actually the most intelligent beings in the universe (much like mice in Hitchhikers Guide). There's a remote possibility that they have been around for billions of years, touring the galaxies in search of the perfect slaves to feed them, walk them and spoil them rotten. 
Right guys, everyone just keep your mouths shut and we can engineer the best quality of life imaginable!
The ruse even goes as far as self sacrifice to human abuse for the canine greater good!! Or maybe I'm crazy.

I wonder what he named me.
