Happyness that was...Photo: Alexandr Minaev - Happyness that was...
Conditions: Zlatoust, 1968, Kiev 4, Jupiter 8, Kn-3 [ed - translation by Con Tendem
What an awesome photo! One can feel the honesty and unmitigated truth of the moment (and title) shining through. For a little illustration on the equipment used:
Kiev 4 goes for around $30 as a "rare" camera, or for $55 with Jupiter 8 lense. Basically Kiev4 is a Contax ripoff made in USSR. Next time someone tells you that they really need a $3,000 camera to photograph their kids - show them this picture and watch them weep.
