R.I.P Kiev 88.......Our love was short indeed.

I remember when I first got it.
I was at my parents house, I bought it on Ebay for who knows how much.
It was my first medium format camera, and I was SO excited.
It was brand new, The box was never opened, it was enclosed in a plastic bag that was clear but dirty, I had no doubt it was radioactive. Everything was in some eastern european language.
I had no idea how to use it.
I eventually got the hang if it pretty well.
About a month ago the really detailed shutter curtain stopped working correctly.
And that was it........ Unfixable I was told by the doctors.
You will (kinda) be missed.
