I instantly regretted handing our then-7-year-old niece the Nikomat FTn with 50mm/f1.4 lens when she took it and ran out my brother’s back porch steps. I chased after her, helpless and terrified by my lack of judgment, only relaxing a little when she got to the grassy back yard (i.e., nature’s carpet). I was super-glad for taking the risk when I saw this shot she took of @heartsandneedles and me. ❤️❤️❤️ October 2016, Richmond, Va. • 📷 Nikomat FTn, 50mm f/1.4 🎞 Kodak Tri-X 400 ⚗️ @thedarkroomlab •
