My Canon AE-1 is 30 years old today

Back on this date in 1977, I went to Lechmere Sales (my favorite store, RIP) to buy my first SLR. It cost $299.99 with a 50mm f/1.8 lens. I still have it and it's never let me down. I've taken thousands of photos with over the years and and it has served me well. I admit I have not used it much recently, but I plan to put a roll of TMax in it to commemorate this milestone.
