|The wall and shadow made this scene interesting but it would have been nothing without the lady who appeared (not posed!) and sat on the wall.|
Leica 111 and f3.5 A36 type Summaron
|Bath, November 2012|
Leica 111a f3.5 Elmar on T-max 400.(uncoated lens) D76 1:1
On the first roll of film after acquiring this camera and having a service. It appeared to be in original condition and therefore rather dry mechanically. The camera and lens have had a CLA by Graham Playford www.playfordrepairs.com.
The glass facade on the new building at the rear made this for me as it achieved the miracle of two sets of shadows at once.

For this shot I used a Leica M2 with a rather different lens. It is a Elmar but one of the f.3.5 versions in a factory M bayonet mount made between 1954 and 1961. A mechanical gem,and probably the best f3.5 Elmar of all, prior to the modern era.The film is yet again T-Max 400 in Fotospeed FD-10.
Best viewed by clicking on the above small image when the photograph will appear against a black background.Perhaps I should have printed this with the blank film rebate showing in black which I can do with a 25 x 37 negative holder on the Focomat.
