Again a FED

Being in Mykolaiv at family Nikolai gave me last year a Kiev-6C with some Kiev-bayonet optics. I had it in repair in Kiev for the aperture ring etc.
Now again a visit in which he gave me a good working FED-5V with Industar-61 L/D. A pretty modern camera and lens: 1989.

So in the mean time I made some photos from Odessa and Mykolaiv on the Black Sea area. I have my C.V. Bessa III 667 and some 120 roll films with me: My last stock Fuji Reala 100 and a few Fomapan 400 films. In Odessa it is possible to buy all kind of films at Maxim B. From Foto-Syndicate. I met him too in Odessa. A very kind person and I can recommend buying from him if you are in Ukraine. Another possibility is Foto Fond in Kiev but I have never been there myself.

Greetings from Ukraine,

Robert

I recall being in Leipzig, Germany, some 8 years ago, and there were lots of old Soviet SLR cameras and a few camera stores in the area around the train station. I guess it's the same in Odessa. My experience with a Kiev wasn't remarkable, but I may give them a chance some day... when I have more time!

Being in Kiev I have made a reportage of Maidan on FP400. The road to it from worlds deepest metro station (-102m) Arsenalna (In Ukraine language: Арсенальна) to the centre is one big cemetery.

In one word: Terrible!
