One of my very first Leica photos, taken with the M3ds and 135mm Elmarit with goggles (Tri-X film). It's not hard to tell what's going on in the photo.

Very nice picture. I know some places in Europe, including The Netherlands, where you can still find this kind of scenery. Even better, it’s my roots and I tend to go back now and then.

I love this photo, so would like to see what those 5 are up to now nearly fifty years later.  Two glasses wearers have me fascinated, twins, brothers.. anyway great look back in time.

Thanks for sharing.

As it seems that most of the discussants are looking at the smoker a little bit too interested, I'd better not know what's sizzling in his pipe... :)

I wondered the same

Chances are, at least one of them is the polar opposite (politically/socially/liberally) to what they were then!

Great shot .... and to think that whole crew is around 70 or so years old today .... time flies, they knew to enjoy youth!

Unless you are the guy on the left, who looks very puzzled by it.
