Strangely, none of the stores I visited sold straps for my Lubitel, and as it is really necessary for this camera I thought of making myself one.
Making this strap didn’t take me more than 10 or 15 minutes. I needed:
Ribbon (I used 2 in order for it to be stronger and more colorful)
Thread and needle
First I joined both of the ribbons and sewed them in order to put them through the ring and sewing them again so they don’t fray.
It was a bit difficult for me to sew these ribbons because they kept fraying… they looked a little ugly so it occurred to me to cover them with some crystals, and furthermore, it looked prettier!
Finally I made the other side and it looked like this:
Making straps for the cameras is really easy and it can be very creative. There are many kinds. I hope that you liked this one with the little crystals. You can try with any other kind of beads or decorations.

By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.

It’s the epitome of a disaster. One fatal day in April 31 years ago changed the world forever. Reactor number 4 exploded, nuclear fuel sticks melted and a radioactive cloud frightened Europe. Chernobyl is a testament for the fragility of humankind. I paid a visit to the post-apocalypse.
