    That is beautiful, the works of J M W Turner come to mind, very good.

    Well, yesterday I was delighted to be given the chance to shoot with a 1932 Leica II that has been languishing in the cupboard of its owner for the last 30 years. Apparently, he brought it with him when he came back from Berlin after the war.

    The above photo is not mine, but taken by a friend who was with me. The first roll, having been developed, is hanging up to dry just now.

    Looking forward to the results. How did you find the handling?

    Hi Pete,
    Well, the roll gave a mixed bag of results. Not that there were some good images and some bad, but rather that they were all exposed fairly well, there were no light leaks, nor was there any evidence of pinholes in the shutter curtains. On the other hand, everything was rather soft and unacceptably so. Nothing was in focus - even those images which had a lot of depth to them.
    I am unable to show any just now but will do so in due course.

    The camera is on long term loan to us, so we will be able to experiment some more.
