Let's hear it for thrift stores
To day I went to meet my wife at her favorite thrift store. No cameras of interest. However, as I wandered around, I found a cheap tripod missing a handle to pan or to point the camera up or down. Pointed that out and got if for $2.50. I think our machine shop can fix me up nicely and my daughter can have her own tripod.
Better yet, I spotted a Vivitar 283 without price markings. $2.50 again. Now I guess my daughter has a good flash to use. I just have to convince her to learn how to use it manually as well as on auto.
I love a good deal.
