Roll 13 / 52 Rolls of Film (Leica iiig, Kodak Elite Chrome)

Roll 14 includes photos taken a bit closer to home. A sunny day strolling around Bath armed with a Leica iiig, built in the late 1950's and still working beautifully.

It is fully mechanical. No light meter (but thankfully my modern iPhone has a very good light meter) and there are two view finders. One you use to focus, the other you use to compose the photograph. So trying to take quick snapshot is very difficult unless you are completely in tune with the changing light and the changing scenes around you.

The click of the shutter on an old Leica is the best sound in photography.

As Henri Cartier-Bressons once said:

"Shooting with a Leica is like a long tender kiss, like firing a pistol, like an hour on the analyst's couch."
