I took this photograph during my last summer in Cheboksary (Chuvash Republic, Russia), right before I left home to start my Ph.D. program in Electrical Engineering at Northeastern University. I used my dad's childhood camera with a standard Helios-44-2 lens.
At that time, I just bought my "new" (new for me) Leica IIIa camera. I tested it for the very first time in Bridgton, Maine, where Peter Terry (a very good friend of ours) invited us during the summer of 2013. For this photograph, I used my only 50 mm Summitar lens.
