    Family 2.jpg

    Leica M-A, Monochrom 1, IIIg (foreground) and Pentax 6x7. None of them are perfect, all are mavericks, they can drive me up the wall or to a kind of heaven. Three analogue, one digital. All at least second hand. Various lenses, including a screw mount to M adapter, so I can use the much cheaper and older Leitz lenses on the digital Monochrom. I love the fact that they are not all perfect specimens of what a camera could be, but have character, characters I can work with. The push-in lens on the M-A (far left) has a rubber band on it to remind me not to push it in when it is on the Monochrom body, as it will scratch the sensor.

    All keepers.

    A fine family portrait and, as with most families, it seems they don't all quite get on! ;)

    Haha, indeed. I have to separate them when things get heated. They all want their turn next, which is a good attitude for a team to have.
