Behind the glass

Dog waiting behind the glass in Downtown Miami, Florida, USA, 2011. Street Photography of Miami, San Francisco and Key West by Emir Shabashvili, see,, or

This photo had been taken with old soviet Kiev 4am camera from 80s. The model is based on wartime Contax; it is heavy balky beast; I liked it a lot. The lens, 53mm f/1.8 Helios 103, is sharp but very flare-prone. The rangefinder, while somewhat awkward in use, is precise. I think it has one of the widest bases among all the 35mm rangefinders. All in all, I glad I brought this piece of aluminium, iron and glass from Russia where I bought it for 650 rubles AKA $20:)
