Vintage glass and the Political Pains in the Ass

Gotta love thrift stores. One person’s trash is another person’s treasure. Or in my case, one person just didn’t know what they had.


That’s a Canon A-1 35mm SLR with Data Back A, a Speedlight 199A and Canon FD 28/2.8, Canon FD 35-70/4 and Vivitar 70-210/3.5. Plus a bag and a few accessories, all for $15! Definitely a steal. Running a roll of B&W through it to see how well it works.

Market price for everything, based on its condition, adds up to over $500. Not too shabby, eh? Of course, finding someone who would willingly shell out over $500 for all would be difficult, but it’s nice to know that there are still steals to be had out there.

Only 2+ days left until we no longer have to listen to the political ads for another year. Whoo hoo. They are all thieves and liars. It amazes me how much people get wrapped up in the lies and lying liars, regardless of their party affiliation.

I think I’ll go buy some meth and get a massage from a gay prostitute now

  1. LOL Bill, I can’t wait ’til they’re finished either! Down with the spreader of lies!

    Oh and great steal on the camera!

  2. Bummer for you Bill. I just knocked back a cannon lens from my local because the only vintage Cannons I’ve got are rangefinders. Still if anything interesting turns up at my local St Vincents I’l let you know.
    Those political ads you been seeing in the states are going to set the bench mark for the next election over here. We call it political papparazzi. Gee! Thanks guys.

    Enjoy your massage.
