a former object of desire

There was a time , not so very long ago (or so it feels) that I wanted this camera more than just about anything. It was rare even then: the K1000 with brown leatherette instead of the usual black, and the SE model to boot.  (That means it came with a split image focusing screen, which, for those who weren’t shooting film back in the day, made the camera  much faster and easier to focus.). A brown SE would have been my dream camera  when I was back in the day myself.

And now I see one used in the back room of a camera store, and while I do still covet it a bit, I don’t want it enough to buy it, even for the pittance it is worth today.  I’m not ready to go back to film right now, even for a Brown One.
