I was stood at the counter of a respected Leica dealer today with the intention of selling my precious Leica M6.I couldn’t do it. Even though the camera sits wrapped in a cotton cloth hardly used, I couldn’t bring myself to sell it. Especially when the dealer told me my 35mm f2 was a seriously sought after version of a classic lens & worth way more than the camera itself.
I’d love the Leica M9 but it really is out of my price range right now. An amazing tool like none other I have handled. But still.. a shed load of cash.
I’m in a good mind to buy a 35mm film tomorrow to put through the M6. Especially as today I was in the London HQ of Magnum Photos. I was surrounded by some amazing images and I could not help but feel inspired.
