the old camera

my aunt gave me that old east german SLR from the 1970s - a praktica - and i so enjoy using it. will need more time to get to grips with film types as well as with choosing aperture and exposure time to get the effect i want. but i so enjoy this!

these are a couple of shots i took over easter, spending the weekend with friends and the week after with my sister and her family. i cannot remember having such a warm and intense april these past few years. i'm enjoying every single day. the cherry trees are snowing off their petals already, only some of them are still in bloom. in some places i have spotted lilac about to flower. everything seems so early this year. mind you, it was a long winter...
