Kiev 35A Fuller Park Door

Fuller Park Door
Kiev 35 A

Notice that the photo above is taken with a new camera, the Kiev 35 A. I wanted a teeny, tiny 35mm camera as I had become jealous of Mr. Risk's Lomo. I almost bought an Olympus XA2, but the thing that held me back was the ugly, 80's bubble look they have. Since various people had recommended the Kiev 35 A, and because they're cheap, cheap, cheap... I got one. When it arrived and I removed it from the box I hated it. I thought it was kind of flimsy with lots of plastic parts. I didn't like the fact that I had to *gasp* use a light metre and set f-stops. I didn't like the flip-down front. I hated (and still do) the pathetic shutter release button. But I've grown into it. I actually like that shitty little light metre now and it takes such wonderful pictures I'm willing to overlook everything else.

My 30th birthday in 29 days and I can't decide how to celebrate. I don't want a party. I don't want to go anywhere. What to do?
