Week 10/Roll 10 – Leica M2 and Kodak Portra 400 Film

I have been lucky in friends either giving or, in this case, lending me some very fine cameras. The Leica M2 is on loan from a friend. It belonged to her father and she had had it serviced, so it’s in beautiful shape. I used it during week 10 to document an nice storm that moved through and for my artist-in-residence work at Elmwood Cemetery.

I found the effect from this lens, the Elmarit 90mm/2.8, interesting. I didn’t notice any haze in the lens so I’m wondering if it’s a characteristic of the lens when shot into sunlight.

  1. Definitely love the dreamy flare on the statue shot, reminds me of childhood portraits of myself and my sister from the 70’s.
