For my 40th rotation around the sun my wife gifted me a beautiful, iconic piece of German engineering from yesteryear – the Leica M6 rangefinder.
It is the start of a new personal adventure in film photography, with many digital years having passed since my early point-and-shoots. And a slight obsession with Leica having formed since getting my Q.
Joe Greer is one of many photographers I follow on Instagram who got me especially interested in this camera. The above short is a wonderfully woven story of his relationship with this camera and the beauty of being intentional and present with film photography.
I look forward to many frustrating learnings and costly mistakes ahead…
