Oh my…hello gorgeous.

I never knew my Dad had this camera and I think my heart skipped a beat when he gave this to me. He bought it in Hong Kong over 30 years ago and it's finally made it's way into my hands…in pristine condition. (Yes, Ray…the lens is a f/1.7…pretty sweet!) I think he may have been waiting a bit to see if I was worthy of inheriting this. Thanks Dad…love it so very much!

And many thanks to pluvieux [] for noticing this on my profile photo. Go check out her blog b/c it is STUNNING and one of my absolute favs on this site!!!
