Some nice pictures from Summilux, the French Leica Forum

Nice shots. I used to work near where to where some of those were taken. There's a cafe next to that MK2 cinema shown in one of them. Having breakfast there one Sunday there was a body being dragged out of the far side of the canal. Not a great way to start the day - though worse for him than me.

You did not have your Leica to capture that moment?

Now I see where the 18mp have gone. Look at the light fuzz hair on the neck and cheek of the young boy in the crop photo. Very impressive pictures. Its getting harder and harder to tell myself that I don't need an M9.

I would have had the Leica with me, but it's not something I would have photographed.

 

Well said Mr Unsworth! I once saw a distinguished UK portrait photographer, David Farrell, delighted at finding a drunk asleep in a Swiss Cottage shop doorway with he arse completely exposed. Taking a shot of that was, I thought, at least a minor lapse in taste.
