    Took my new-old Leica M3 and Summicron 50/2.0 lens (both from the 60's) downtown San Francisco and ended up taking half-a-roll of a one-day strike outside of Macy's. Film: Fuji Acros 100.

    Thanks for comments - appreciate it.

    The Leica M3 camera is very fun camera to use - no autofocusing, no meter in the camera and rangefinder focusing.

    I also like the Summicron lens - sometimes it tend to render subjects almost in a three-dimensional way - here maybe visible in #3.

    Thanks again.

    Whoa!!! The guy with the coffee cup and his "confused" expression provides a strong contrast to what is going on. The emotion of the other frames is right on. I am jealous you got these in only 18 shots.

    The rangefinder will always have the advantage in this kind of situation (let alone a LEICA). That stupid mirror flipping up during the decisive moment in SLR's sometimes does not make the cut.
