Leica-M7-p1020464A bunch… maybe half or so… of my pictures I prefer in black and white. I especially love the look of not just the look of black and white, but that of film.

The problem with film is that it’s not instant. And it’s expensive.

I have the darkroom setup to develop and print film. I’m not quite sure I want to be printing stuff any more even though I have the enlarger ready to go.

But still film has a certain appeal.

Every time I think of this I think of picking up a used (and perhaps pre-beat up) Leica M6 or M7 and go out with it and shoot something. I already have the lenses.

Go out. Shoot. You can’t look.

You go home. Work some chemistry magic.

And look.
