Train Tunnel

My first camera was a Zenith E – a Russian SLR – the cheapest one around. Yet, I had to work in a factory all through the summer vacation to be able to afford it and it took me a few months to master it. This was one of my first successes with that camera. The picture was taken in the Alps in 1975. We were on winter holidays and my father was a train aficionado. Of course I was longing for his approval.

The camera slowly fell apart and it got lost along the way. Recently on the Izmailovsky Market in Moscow I found the exact same camera and I bought it for close to nothing.
