The famous leica works! 58 years old and going strong. I shot a roll of 24 yesterday, developed it today, and got some wonderful results. Including yours truly in the mirror above.
I wouldn’t say I’m a lucky person, and I mean that in the sense that I don’t usually win a lot of contests or happen upon good deals in the supermarket. I won a meet and greet with my favorite band Jack’s Mannequin when I was 17, but that was as serious as it got. But I really have to say, “inheriting” this camera was an amazing and extremely fortunate occurence for me. I normally would only dream of owning this kind of thing. And here I am, holding it.
And when I put inherit in quotation marks, it’s because there was no official will or legal document, just verbal transaction. I don’t mean I killed someone or falsified a signature. I swear.
