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.
