Hello. Today, there are 50 000 of you following these picturesques adventures. This is an oldie taken in a train from Osaka to Kyoto, where my analog journey all began. Thank you all for sticking around and still making this work after all these years.
I just picked this Leica CL up, first for practical reasons, and a few sentimental ones as well. I have a few documentary projects I’m planning that I’ll be working on simultaneously and will need to shoot color film for one and black and white for the other. The CL will act as my backup to the M6. Also, the CL was a collaboration with Minolta and the styling of the camera closely resembles the compact Minolta autofocus rangefinder my parents used my whole childhood. Just looking at it gives me a bit of peace.
Got myself a new tripod, it’s a Sirui T-005X made out of aluminium; very light and portable and goes perfect with the X-Pro2, a solid affordable option if you are in the market for a new travel tripod.
