Yes, that’s right, I was shooting with a Leica DSLR, albeit briefly (the battery got tuckered out quickly in the cold). And how did this wonderful surprise happen? Mauro, a regular visitor to my blog (his blog is called, Never In Colour), and I got together this afternoon and spent four hours downtown and along the harbour front taking photos today! He not only brought along his Leica film camera, but also his Leica DSLR for me to try out. This is the first time we’ve met in person and we had a fantastic day of photography and conversation. It was also the first time I’ve shot with a real camera! What a treat. Mauro, I can’t thank you enough for your generosity today: with the camera and coffee and sharing your photography knowledge and experience. We took plenty of photos and also visited Downtown Camera (we checked out the Panasonic GF1 while there). It was really a fun day and I’m hoping we’ll get to do it again. The above photo was taken with his Leica DSLR. It’s quite the step up from my wee point & shoot. Hope you like the photo.
