Analogue Love

I have been thinking about getting a second film camera body so I can switch films without finishing rolls.   It is very helpful if you are shooting ASA 100 film late in the day and need to switch to 400 or 800 and you haven't finished a roll or a similar situation.   Regardless of how weak my justification is please work with me here as it is all I could think of to justify buying another Leica. I was in MAP Camera the other day and came across a beautiful Leica M6 Millenium.  The Millenium Edition is a limited release retro edition of the M6 in Black paint.   2000 cameras were made and released in January 2000.    The key features: black paint on a brass top plate, engraving on the top plate, .72 viewfinder, all metal film advance lever, black paint strap lugs and engraved open/close markings on the baseplate.    The camera is brand new without a scratch on it...when I bought it.  I ended up brassing the strap lugs a bit while putting on the strap.

My camera family...I also saw a few others so I might need to work on my family expansion plan and justification.

I was walking down a street the other day and every store had a junction box with exposed wires.   #dangerous

I picked up some of the very interesting looking Lomography Colored Films.    I am thinking photographing San Francisco in X Thungsten.   It will make for a very cool look...
