Today I entered the realm of Leica.
After much contemplation at night I went back to Foto Gregor and purchased my Classic Leica M6 TTL with a 0.72 Viewfinder. With it came a Summicron 50mm f/2.0 lens.
I love this camera. Say what you like about Leica but this camera is built superbly and I'm sure it will be a joy to shoot.
After getting the Leica I got shooting right away, then we went off for some afternoon tea.
It was time to get some film through the new camera.
I popped into the McDonalds next to my Hotel quickly after shooting that night to grab a bottle of water.
The violinist above was sitting outside the McDonalds, quietly playing a tune. Case open looking at the people passing by. He was, as far as I could tell, homeless. I gave him one of the bottles of water and whatever change was left over. I asked him to pose for a photography and he happily obliged. He put on his prosthetic foot ( yeah, also an amputee) and stood proud with the Cathedral in the background. He was very happy to have the attention of just a random stranger. After this photograph I took a photo for him with his cellphone, (think $5 Pay as you go) and showed me all of his pictures with other strangers. It was a great experience to have and I wish him the best on whatever and wherever he is.
Country side tomorrow.
