Hollywood Camera on N.E. Sandy Blvd.
Once a month I love to go into Hollywood camera and check out the stock. For those who really love the silver medium and precision analog equipment it is a great way to spend an hour or more. It is also a meeting place for collectors of old cameras where they congregate on Saturday mornings showing off their latest acquisition or trying to low ball Ed for a newly acquired treasure that he has picked up. He has been in the business at that location since 1953 and he knows his stuff. A fascinating man who was part of the occupation forces in Japan in WWII. I've been visiting him now for 5 years and own at least two cameras, several lenses, and a lot of darkroom gear that I acquired in his shop. Over the years I have seen and handled some amazing pieces of photographic history there.
