Burning love

An happy accident with one of my Fed 3 camera (I have two). This one, after years of works, reach its end; a hole was formed in the second curtain. The first images of the roll are OK, but the last half presents light leaks. I save these two images: a couple that seem to burn in love, and a street artist inflamed by her song. R.I.P. dear Fed 3!

    I treated my Fed... if I had a small hole ...with a marker. which is not too spirited. (pasty), I had a silver one.

    @why-yu I repaired some small holes in this way https://www.lomography.it/magazine/212016-how-to-repair-the… (my article), but here the hole is too big...

    This is my second Fed 3 with this problem (the first was the one in the article). I have a third one, this is for now like new. Fed 3, 4 and 5 curtains are less reliable than Zorki 1...6 and Fed 1,2 ones!

    and if you stick a small piece of cloth. and then cover with white glue. of course it doesn't matter if you have another one :)
