Good-bye, Lucy

While I was in Sicily with my husband my first and favorite medium format camera, a Mamiya 645, jammed.  I brought it home and hoped it was something simple and something that could be fixed.  I received the official word yesterday that she is not repairable.

When I first received her I named her Lucy.  I took Lucy everywhere.  She was able to see what I see. She was a heavy beast, but it was worth it to lug around town.  She never let me down.

Good-bye, Lucy. Thank you for helping fall in love with film and for all of our adventures.

  1. So so sad! Film cameras have such personality, and I can imagine how very sad it is to lose this one 😦 Such a gorgeous set of photographs! ❤

Thank you for your kind words.
