Charlie and his Olympus OM2-SP

Thanks to a good friend, +Charles Lacz, our little Charlie has himself a new camera. Sadly, a while back, Charles dropped his OM2-SP and the meter doesn't work anymore. The lens now has a sticky aperture. So, as Charles was having a bit of a spring-clean last week, little Charlie scored himself a new toy.

It's at moments like these that I wish my father were still alive, as my first SLR was his old OM1n and I later had a 2-SP of my own as well. It'd have given dad a kick to see my youngest wielding this camera.

Charlie loves it and takes great joy in shooting and winding-on. Glad to have snapped him a few minutes ago playing with it. Maybe the little fella will end up doing something with cameras in his future.
