Used Camera Fair in Shibuya

Used Camera Fair in Shibuya

I decided to run out to Shibuya for a little shooting and shopping last night...   I love how there are no trash cans in Tokyo so the poor little recycling one next to the vending machines gets piled high each day... きのう渋谷にしゃしんをとりに行きました。

Today’s Configuration: Leica M9 with Summilux 35mm f/1.4.

今日のカメラ:私のライカM9をつかいます。レンズはSummilux 35mm f/1.4。

I snapped a photo of the train as I was getting off...in the distance you can see the Tokyu security guard running over to see what I am doing.   I must have looked dangerous.

このでんしゃのしゃしんをとりました。 たぶん。。。私はあぶないみたいです。。。

Thanks to a heads up from a friend I learnt there is a Used Camera Sale going on in the Tokyu Department Store above Shibuya Station...on the 8th floor running until the 8th.

Rows and Rows of Leica M2, Leica MPs, Leica M6, M6 TTL, M7s and M8s and more... I could have spend a fortune here if I knew more about old Leicas and which were the ones to have.

I was lucky to get out with out buying any camera equipment... I did update my camera bag to a slightly bigger Billingham that can fit both my Leica, lens and x100.  My previous bag was just too small.

あたらしいカメラバッグをかいました。。。

I stopped by Apple Store in Shibuya... I needed to put up a new wireless router.    I also picked up an additional 4TB of Western Digital Drives.    My storage farm is now 10,000GBs.... 2TBs for Mac Backup, 4 TBs of Video, 2 TBs for photo backups and an extra 2TB drive.     I get all of my TV from iTunes so I have a ton of data...aside from that the 5 silver stacks look really cool.  I'll take a shot when I get them set up.

This was a costly picture... I squatted down to take a photo of this bike and stepped on my Bang & Olufsen headphones cord and when I stood up they broke...
