Honeymoon Cottage

Honeymoon Cottage
I've passed by this house for almost 40 years and it wasn't until just before my Dad died that I found out from him that this house was the first place his younger brother, Deon, lived when he got married for the first time in the early 1960's.

This is one of the shots taken with my Spartus Rocket, which I acquired in the 1970's. This is the first chance I've had to use it and, in doing so, the film advance knob broke after three frames. I had to finish the roll in another camera. But, at least I finally got to use the camera.
