"I used to work at a drop in center for disadvantaged people. You could get some real tough cookies there, but on the whole people who used the service were really lovely and genuine. One day a senior worker at the center, who knew I had just started to take my digital photography seriously, gave me the centers old pentax mz-50 to put to good use (They had since upgraded to digital cameras). I had the camera for a while before the camera body died, so i replaced it and then a year or so later, I fell over and smashed the lens… the camera body was ok. As I have a couple of film cameras now, I donated the camera body, batteries, charger and some film to someone at work who was keen to get into Film photography. They were happy to source a lens for it. It was really nice to be able to pass on the camera, while it may not have been the exact same camera, it still felt like i was passing it on in spirit."matthew
