This post is long overdue! I never got around to posting the second part of how I spent the last day of being 23. I’ll post that one soon too.
After I explored around Monterey, I went home & my mom excitedly followed me to my room to give me a birthday card & show me this camera she bought. The previous owner was selling it at a garage sale along with a two lenses, original manuals, & an original photo strap all for $50. My mom managed to talk the previous owner down to $15! At the end of her story, she said, “It’s yours, as part of your birthday present.” & I asked, “Why?” She replied, “Because I know you’re collecting cameras.” You know what I would have never imagined happening? My mom supporting the things I’m passionate about. The camera & both lenses are in awesome condition & all for $15! There was only a little bit of oil in one of the lens, so my brother spent time taking it apart, cleaning it, & now it’s perfect.
The next morning, I went exploring & took my new camera with me to test it out.
I developed my film at my favorite local photo shop (Foto Express).
