It’s like having your eyes opened after along sleep. I am really enjoying using this camera and amazed at the results that I am getting. The Picture of the Week was taken on the way back from Stratford on Avon on Wednesday and is fantastic when viewed at a large size. (even if I do say so myself!)
I have also found a shop in Manchester that will process 120 colour negative roll film in an hour, so I might experiment with some after all. I want to get used to some different films before going to Skye in September, so will buy some slide film too. Can’t wait!
Finally, we are nearly there with the Leica User Forum Charity Book. We have bought two copies of the final draft, in hardback, so that we can properly see what people will be getting and can adjust if necessary. The next thing is then to organise launch parties in London, Manchester, Germany and hopefully in the US, probably New York. Much depends upon if we can get someone over there to help, but we are working on that.
It should be a really good evening if we can get it right. We are probably talking about mid July, but it all depends on getting the right venue. Organising drinks and a DVD of the shots is the easy part.
