New travelmate! :-)

Well, a couple of days ago, I fulfilled a dream born when I was a student… I naturally didn’t have enough money at that time, but the dream never died… it went to sleep when the digital era started, I haven’t shot a roll of film in at least 15 years I believe, but lately the nostalgia has bitten me… don’t know why, don’t know how, don’t really care… 😀

As a student I had a brochure of a Leica M6, it is well-read and studied, and I was really fascinated about everything except the price… ;-P

A couple of days ago, I came across a used one for a price I could live with, the owner I bought it from had bought it from a famous British document- and war-photographer, Marcus Bleasdale (http://www.marcusbleasdale.com/), so I believe this camera has seen it’s fare share of misery (judging by his photos..)… among other places, it has been used a lot to document the conflicts in Congo and Africa…

First Black&White roll is almost at the end of the road, I am excited to get it processed and see the results… 🙂

Let’s just hope the bug isn’t biting harder… evolving from a user to a collector sounds expensive… ;-P

Noe er bare flottere i BW. Faktisk mer og mer etterhvert som kamera oftere og oftere står på denne innstillingen 🙂
