Dusted off the Leica M4-P with the 1937 5cm F2 Summar lens back in January. Here are a few photos I shot on a roll of Kodak BW400CN in March. Figured I would start processing some of the film.Untitled-32 Untitled-16Untitled-33Untitled-13Untitled-31Untitled-53Untitled-48Untitled-50

Rooster Walk And A New (Really Old) Lens

leave a comment »

This past week, I bought a new lens. Actually, it’s just a new to me lens. It’s a Leica 50mm F2 Summar built in 1934 that has plenty of cleaning marks on the front element. I thought it would be fun to give a 77-year-old lens a try. I love shooting with the Leica M4-P since it doesn’t have a meter nor any other functions. You just use sunny 16 to set the aperture and shutter speed and have at it. Here are a few photos shot with the Leica M4-P and 50mm F2.

Thanks to the organizers for putting together a fun event, for an outstanding cause in memory of two great guys.
