In my campaign of spending as little as possible (I haven't bought a book in something like 2 months which for me is an amazing achievement), I thought I would never find a really good second reflex film camera... but a friend actually gave me her old Canon EOS 5000. Yes, it's one of the plastic and cheaper models but let me repeat: a friend gave me a Canon EOS 5000 ❤! 

I love the EOS series. My father has a digital EOS and I completely adore it; I simply couldn't spend that much money on a camera right now so I'm so grateful for the gift. 

My dad has been cleaning it and repairing it and last weekend we went to test it at the lake in the village my parents live in. These above are a few of the pictures from the test roll, the ones I think weren't all that terrible. I need to learn how to focus with it (miopia + astigmatism, not so great when using a camera), again, but that's ok!
