For a numbers of years I have been taking photos for the paper and other events. Now my poor old camera is having major problems. If you have a 35mm camera that you would like to part with, give me a call at 763-3751. Now, I know what you are saying: "why doesn't she buy a new camera?" The reason being, as you know, I have a bad trauma (shaking). The camera I have now helps me with that. I want to thank you in advance.
