An Unusual Package

This isn't normally the way my mail looks, but this package was delivered by my mailman on Friday.
All the way from Ukraine. What an interesting tag!
I had some help opening this package.
Lots of help.
Inside, I found this great old camera case, and inside of that, this awesome old camera!
After the workshop in California with Sean, I want to keep making tin types. This large format camera made in the former Soviet Union will allow me to make larger photos more easily.

Once I figure out how to use it.

  10. Oh how so very very very exciting. You are amazing. I kinda want to hear the before story. Like how did you find it? and all that. And the wait for arrival. And how did it manage to arrive in like new condition. Oh well, just hurry and try it out and show and tell us.

  12. Good for you Leslie, I knew you would find one. So thrilled for you and can't wait to see what is produced from the lens, and from the gal behind the lens.
