Terry Maltby Los Angeles Married to John, monogamously, for 20 years Other domestic residents: a male and a female cocker spaniel, both 6 years old Photography inspiration: my father, whose M2 dazzled me as a child and mesmerizes me to this day. Due to his accompanying M lenses, I am still deeply inspired by and grateful to him for the many hours he has spent traveling throughout the u.s. and around the world with that system. He has shot thousands of photos of me, my mother, my three brothers and one sister, many of the states, and almost every other country in the world, resulting in a photo album I will always deeply cherish. We still go out together, he with his M2 and I with either my M6 or R7, and have a wonderful time fondling our respective Leica cameras' bodies and lenses and eagerly awaiting wonderful results. He started with a Leica during World War II, during his stay in the Navy as a pilot, and the photos he still has that were taken with that camera are wonderful! M6: bought with 35 mm Summicron and 90 mm Summicron R7: bought new with 24 mm, 50 mm, 60 mm macro, 180 mm APO Telyt, and 250 mm lenses. R4: bought used Also own Leica mini-zoom and new ZX2 for quick shooting and carry either one with me daily for all purposes (neither one's body and internal components is made by Leica, but so what--both contain lenses that are wonderful!). Flash for R7: Metz 60 CT-4 (astounding compatibilty and results) Bag: Billingham 205 for M6...still deciding which to buy for R7 and multiple lenses inasmuch as the 205 is too small for same, especially the telephoto lenses.
