When I spent the last weekend at my sister's, we spent most of the time looking at her photos taken during her trip to Namibia from 1 to 15 October. But when I was just about to leave, I asked her the question that I had wanted to ask all the while, i.e. whether one of our dad's old Leica's was still there, and if so, where, and if it was in good working order, and could I borrow one? And so she showed me all she had carefully stored away, such as her own very first camera ever which she got when she became 8: 1/10, f2.8, no flash, manual wb, handheld Or our father's very first camera, but I can't tell how old this one is? Anyone of you might know? 1/3, f2.8, no flash, manual wb, handheld 1/5, f2.8, no flash, manual wb, handheld 1/8, f2.8, no flash, manual wb, handheld Or this one, which unfortunately no longer is in working order, but I still remember so well the times when my father took portrait pics of us, sister, brother and myself, when we were very little: 1/2, f3.2, no flash, manual wb, handheld And one of the Leicas, the M2, without inbuilt light metre 1/2, f3.2, no flash, manual wb, handheld And here comes the best part of all: the Leica that my sister gave me to take home with me so I can now go "back to the roots" and learn some aspects about photography that I have never really had the chance to learn much all three taken at 1/2, f3.2, no flash, manual wb, handheld I am testing it now with an Ilford HP5 plus 400 and can only HOPE for some good results. It is soooooooo thrilling!
