When I was a young child my summers were spent walking the 600 or so metres from my home to the nearby river to play in its clear waters. Now close on 70 years later this image reminds me so much of those happy days. That is the power of photography.

Same time, almost, same country, different river, same distance, but no one talked about metres. Maybe 600 yards to the river, digging small ragworm “wrigglers” in the mud amongst the broken glass. The best ones were right by the edge of the mud where it dropped off into 20 feet of salty tidal harbour water. Not far from where this recent picture was taken, with a 111g and 50mm Summicron.

Very true Gerry, and the older we get the easier it is to  remember the past and forget what we had for breakfast.

Both shots are nice thanks Pyrogallol

      I am slowly managing to get out more now, ands back in my usual coffee shop yesterday. I couldn't resist taking a candid image of this young lady at the counter because of her height. She must have been about 1.8 metres.

      Hi, I'm new to Leica and I'm looking into small-ish lens for everyday use. Which one of these (assuming all are in good condition) would you recommend?
      Prices are:
      Summicron €389 (little haze)
      Elmar €499
      Modern Elmar-M €660
      Leaning towards the modern Elmar-M but I have zero experience with leica lenses.
      Thank you!

      It was great to finally be able to get out to my favourite cafe yesterday and drink coffee with a friend I haven't seen since Christmas. I have been having problems with my knee and have found walking almost impossible but thankfully I am just using one stick now.
      This is one image I grabbed whilst sat outside the cafe in the beautiful sunshine
