Ba & a TLR Camera

Ba & the TLR at Anak Bukit (195?)
My earliest memories of photography is in the 1950s when Ba, my father, had a twin-lens reflex camera or a TLR. A film camera that uses the 120 film. One where the viewfinder is at waist level, remember? I think it was a Rolleiflex brand. (Was it? Not too sure ...)

Our family pictures then were mostly taken at home or in the beautiful Sultan's Garden at Anak Bukit, Alor Star Kedah.

I think my own first camera was the Kodak instamatic which started being available in 1963. It was so easy to use, but the photos that turned out were not so great.
