photo from 127 camera number 27 - Purma Special

The Purma special has three shutter speeds, selceted according to which way up the camera is held, but there is no "B" setting, so indoor shots are generally not feasible. This sunlit chapel seemed just about bright enough to get away with the "slow" shutter speed, so I took this picture of Isaac Newton. Even though the sculpture was several feet away, it is clear that the lens is focussed better on the wall behind, there is no way to focus the Purma, other than by attaching supplementary lenses, but I don't have any of them, so this was the best I could do.
