Nice candid shots. I shot a similar series when I was in Istanbul a couple of years ago - it's always fun to see how much time others have to just sit around, especially when we always seem to be so busy......

I have to be honest about vietnam and many other asian countries. Before the internet, it was my dream to visit. But all I ever see from those countries is people sitting.

Sitting on this sidewalk. Sitting on that sidewalk. Crouching here. Crouching there.

 

Eat soup while crohching, crouching while

Eating soup. Crouch sleeping. Sleeping and crouching.

 

If I base my opinion on the 1million+ photos I've seen from vietnam My conclusion is that tere's nothing interesting to shoot over there. Except people crouching.

haha, well I don't know if you've checked out my full series behind the link but what you said is kind of the point of the series

... kind of

 

That being said, there is a lot more to photograph than people sitting! However, I have to agree that there are other countries that inspire me quite a bit more...

here you go..interesting to hear your genuine opinion of my terrible  photos & your vociferous opinion of disabled people.

 

 

 



Close up of car doors, people's backs, unrealistic colors... At least you worked hard to avoid all the people crutching ad infinitum.

You shouldn't have such a low opinion of your own work, though. As far as I'm concerned, I haven't judged them, and HDR is a matter of taste.

 

About the disabled, I have no idea where you read my vociferous opinion on them. But shooting them doesn't necessarily mean that you respect them more than if you don't shoot them.

 

Edit: i meant crouching, not crutching.

      I mostly just want to gripe here. I've been trying for a couple of months to find a vaguely period-correct collapsible 50mm Summicron for a IIIg. Twice so far I've actually bought one, for hundreds of dollars, once from a reputable shop and once from someone on Reddit. 
      Both Summicrons were inoperable, and in the same way - disassembled by an amateur and put back together I assume with one or more elements reversed or in the wrong order. No sharp image at any distance, just a hazy swirling blur from infinity to up close.  I haven't taken a Summicron apart, but I'm wondering if this is a particularly easy thing to get wrong?  In any case I assume even if it were reassembled in the right order and orientation it'd need major recalibration than I'd have no way to accomplish. The most recent one also had the aperture ring installed wrong, rotated 90 degrees from correct.
      It's just disappointing to see that sellers apparently don't even bother slapping a lens on a digital body and taking a quick snapshot to see if it's even functional at all.
      It's kind of a dreamy effect but this is not the "Leica Glow" I was hoping for! 🤣

      About 100 yers ago, Leitz company issued a set of theatre binoculars in gold (BINAR and BITUR, according to Laney). It was a thing of class and the luxury edition adorned  their catalogue until the WWII. The logical choice was to try and implement the gold mystique to the Leitz cameras as well - and thus in 1929 the "Luxus" Leica (LELUX, LESSALUX) was born. Although never a huge commercial success, the cameras (less than 100 made according to Rogliatti et al.) remains a collector favorite.

      Fast forward to the M era. There were several attempts to revive the glitter with custom golden M3's, but the biggest golden boom was created after the M "revival" with the special edition M4-2 in 1979, commemorating the 100 years anniversary of Oskar Barnack (1879-1979). There were 500+500 cameras made in 1979 and 1980 in Canada for the occasion (1527201-1527700 and 1528151-1528650 respectively) with 24-karat gold plating.

      After that, there were several more editions in gold - for the Sultan of Brunei (I know of two variants, first was the 25th Anniversary of accession to the throne of Sultan of Brunei on 1st October 1992), for the commemoration of the Golden Jubilee celebration of the access to the throne of HM The King Bhumiphol Adulyadej of Thailand (1996) and the Leica MP Gold "60 years PRC" (2009).

      Several very nice golden M2, M3 and M4s surface on eBay now and then, but they are all custom repaints.
      No golden M was made in digital era, only brass - M10P for Thailand S.C. ASSET comes to mind.

      Please feel free to add any additional information!
      And do write how you feel about golden Leicas. You know what they say - anything useful to you is pure gold, regardless of the material used...

      (Pictured here: my personal M4-2 with Leica catalogue production number 10420 from 1980 with the Summilux dating from 1977.)
