I am honored to be a guest blogger on 35mmc – a blog/webpage that I have been reading for quite some time. When I got the question if I could make a post, I thought of what I should write about. 5 pictures is the theme – but what five pictures? Then it struck me, I have had five Leicas. What about if I post one picture of each camera, and write something about what a Leica camera means to me.
I never intended to purchase a Leica Q when it was first announced. I watched a couple of videos on YouTube that entered my feed when it was initially released and disregarded it. Presumably due to how street shooter centric the videos were. A year later I had sold my A7 series Sony in the hope to simplify my equipment. I was predominantly shooting film for commercial and personal use and was starting to grow frustrated that the Sony was simply not as enjoyable to work with as my analogue offerings.
