rolls 1 & 2, birthed from the russian bride..

i won’t lie. i was a little disappointed when i got my first roll out of my new LUBITEL 166B. we didn’t know each other very well, and even worse, the spool got away from me when i was unloading and lightleaks got everywhere..

a couple of frames survived, but i was still unsure if she was getting enough light. so naturally, i doubled up! in my mind, i was also making up for my lack of focusing abilities. “1.4 meters” is such an abstract number in my head.

but all & all, her first roll came out like any typical test roll..

and i couldn’t stay disappointed in her for long..the second roll came out a little sharper, a little clearer, a little more colorful as i started to understand all her quirks.

she was the guest of honor on new years!

and bravely faced her first american snow (but only barely—i managed to break her self timer mechanism in a flurry of snowflakes! you’d figure a russian broad would be a little more resilient..)

but the dogs are still absolutely unimpressed with mommy’s new obsession.

and i’m still very much behind on catching up with all my lomofriend’s new year’s photos.. i’m so excited to find a couple hours and just dive in! thank you all for your support and love, and best wishes for the next 11 months in analogue!

    once or twice a year we get a huuuuuuge snow dump! it's really pretty for about 20 minutes before it turns into yucky slush.
