Taking photos with film

I am starting to change my mind about the digital slr. Some of you may know that I have been dreaming of owning a dslr for some time now -about two years. Omar has always insisted on traditional film cameras but he didn't changed my mind. Although he owns a Nikon FM2, I have never had a real go with it. Until two days ago.
A friend of ours gave Omar an old Yashica SLR, with a medium quality lens as a present. Of course Omar decided that the camera needed a good lens and so it was his first priority in Toronto to get a fitting lens for it -something I really hate about slr: lenses only fit certain cameras, so all the nikon lenses that we have do not fit the Yashica, erhh!
Anyway we got to a Camera Outlet place where you can buy second hand lenses that cost anything from $50CAN, which translates into around 25GBP, a bargain. And Omar found this total cool lens a Carl Zeiss 50mm 1.4, I mean that is a real piece of glass! So even I got excited and couldn't wait to try. And here is the first photo I took with it. My hadnsome husband in a ally downtown Toronto.
