Old is gold… so is the Canon A-1!

Picture 098

When we were children in the early 80’s, dad owned a beautiful Canon A-1 camera and he used to take AMAZING shots with it… he had lenses and stuff and we were always mesmerized by his equipment… It was even used by a q8y man during the 1990 invasion to shoot some of the photos in a photo book he later published!

Anyways the Camera eventually went into his cupboard, unnoticed by mom -she would throw it away in a heartbeat-  and gathered dust until i unearthed it and dusted it off… Isn’t it beautiful? Check out the Free Kuwait Signature Sticker of 1990… and the Old Cannon Logo… plus the old film canisters -sold for 1 KD lool-
