Kind of a big deal

My very first SLR.

If you don't know what that means, basically it means a camera that is able to take the pictures I see in my head, exactly as I see them in my head. A partner, an equal. If there are any limitations now, they are mine alone.

35mm. A Zenit 412LS. It's a discontinued (I think? I got mine refurbished, anyways) Russian camera. By no means the best camera money can buy, but it's a clever little machine that'll do everything I want it to do and leave some growing room, and it only cost $100.

I'm not really a fan of entitlement language, but used sparingly and at the right times? Like right now?

I deserve this. I deserve this. And it's here.
