Meet Zoe, my Zenit TTL

This is an actual photo of Zoe, taken with Sophie, my digital camera.

My mom bought Zoe when she was around my age, circa 1980-somethings. I found her hidden behind some books on a shelf and decided to adopt her – with my mom’s blessing, of course. Although I was very, very young, I vaguely remember taking some pictures with her when digital cameras weren’t an affordable thing yet, so Zoe and I have been friends for a long time. It’s been equally hard and fun relearning how to use her and I’m gradually but steadily falling completely in love with film photography.
