On 26 May was the Christopher Street Day in hanover. Like every saturday there is also the flea market. Before I have met with my friends so I went to the flea market and I checked the stands. At a table I noticed a black leather camera case with a “Lomo”-sign. In the leather case I discovered an old Lomo Smena Symbol in good condition. I bought it for 3€. Immediately I ran to the nearest drugstore and bought a cheap color negative film and loaded it in. At home I realized that I have set the whole day the shutter speed and distance, but had forgotten the aperture size. But somehow I had a huge luck and the aperture size was set properly and so are some nice photos were taken with this first film. I like the camera very much!
