Continuing my trawl through my archives, I found this from Chinese New Year in London 1998. I had been shooting with my first Leica (a M3) for less than a year at this stage.

Film was Fuji Neopan 400 and the lens was an old Summicron 50mm f2.

 Gerry, I wonder now after  20 years  is there still the same  excietement .

Nice picture thanks for sharing

When I took that photo the crowd was so tight that at times I could not lift my camera to my eye because my arms were pinned to my side. At the moment London is in total lockdown because of coronavirus so we will have to wait and see jn a few weeks time. I think it will take a lot to stop the Chinese celebrating their New Year.

Thanks for commenting,

      I was wondering if anyone had any experience with knowing if it is possible to modify a Leica M3 DS eyepiece. I know that SS Leica M3’s have a larger eyepiece area with the DS Leica M3’s containing what appears to be an ‘inner’ smaller metal ring. 
      I was curious if it would be possible to remove this inner ring on a DS so that the eyepiece view is more larger like that of a SS M3. Soon I may be able to purchase a Leica M3 DS example, hence the curiosity.
      any input greatly appreciated.
      thankyou for your time everyone.

      In this video I will show you how to load the film in the Leica M2 and Leica M3, the procedure requires a minimum of time and precision but it is not difficult, follow the instructions carefully and you will have no problems.

      Hello!   I'm trying to lock in a scanning workflow for B/W 35mm and I've had such a love/hate relationship with my Coolscan 5000 and Vuescan.  The detail extracted is second to none, but I'm seeing EVERY flaw as well.  There are hairline surface scratches that explode on the screen from these scans that are nowhere to be found on a mirrorless camera scan or a darkroom print.  
        Is this just inherent to the scanning physics?  Is it scanning the surface and therefore every film base scratch is seen?  Again, if you backlight the negative, all of these tiny scratches are invisible.  Hence why they don't show up in camera scans or darkroom prints.   Any ideas?

      Because of the covid-19 lockdown I am unable to go out on to the streets to photograph, not that there are any people around. I am therefore still working through my archives, and came across this image from Paris in 2002. Taken with a Leica M6, 50mm Summicron f2 and using Kodak T400CN film (which I used to love!). I hope you like it.
      I have also been revamping my web site using Adobe Portfolio, which is part of the Lightroom/Photoshop package, and like the results so far, although it is a work in progress. Take a look here
