I used to work for a reasonably well known national photographic retail shop as a Saturday boy. During the time i worked there, which lasted no longer than 20 months, the stock went from being 90% film to 90% digital.
The first customer catalogue I browsed through I passed over the SLR’s F5’s, EOS 1’s and then at the bottom of the next page on its own was a camera I recognised but hadn’t given much thought to. The Leica M7. After researching some more on these great looking cameras I loved its history where these cameras had come from and gone through, if fair to say, I wanted one. But, not the M7, I didn’t need this fancy aperture priority stuff. The M6 is what i wanted.
A good number of years after, i finally got myself a Leica M6ttl and this little page is my favourite shots from that beautiful camera.
