Just returned from a trip to this wonderful place. I developed 4 rolls of film and the rest are off to the lab. Here are a few shots from
the beautiful alleyways of the city. I decided to pack light and took the Contax T2 the source of these images, along with a Leica M3 and one lens (50) and a medium format camera that I ended up not using much – lesson learned. The T2 is a great travel camera, meter off of the shadows and the camera takes care of the rest well. While there is DX coding only, a simple turn of the exposure compensation button does the trick to rate the film differently. The island is a beautiful and warm place. I never felt unsafe and the people do not seem averse to intrusion from an inquisitive photographer.

Nice shots!! I also use my T2 when on the road.
