Subject: [Leica] pleasingly plump?

i admire the svelte lines of my m2. i also liked the looks of the leicaflex.
i lost interest in leica reflexes after they gummed up the  minolta xdll.
imagine my surprise seeing the r8 for the first time today. it posed prone
on the back cover of an english mag i thought might have tips for orgies.
the r8 was shot from above.what does this remind me of i
asked myself. delta burke just before she ballooned and floated away from
designing women? then it hit me: i dont know how he felt but bill clinton
must have seen something similair when he looked down white eating pizza &
discussing war with a congressman.  does an r8 owner call his camera my
lewinsky or just monica? since she's into custom handbags r8 owners might
get a custom case  w/drop front&thong strap. looks of course arent
everything(i tell my mirror) but after glimpsing  the r8 i'm getting out my
40yr-old black nikon f with plain prism. make a stunning couple black nf and
chrome m2, mean photomachines both and both lean.  ralph
