Self-portrait in Paris taken the day I acquired a Mamiya RB67.
Tamara is always the subject of the first frame on any new camera I buy and this day was no different, unfortunately, whilst she may have been the first frame I made a complete dog’s dinner of that shot and the next few frames, this being the first on the roll that was even close to being in focus.

I quickly got the hang of it though I soon found I didn’t use the camera anywhere near as often as I used my various Kiev Medium Format cameras.

Eventually I gave it away, though just recently I have been hankering after another.
