Hi Paul,

When I give photography lectures I usually start off with:  "Real
photographers shoot Black & White, Eat Sushi and drink single malt Scotch!"

Some times I add  "shoot B&W with a Leica" or "not necessarily in that order!"

Well that's a fair number alright and well ahead of me, but 90% of mine
(around 40) are either full or just barely "taste tested!" :) It's tough
keeping them full when friends come to visit.:) Hell they all want to do
their own testing.:)

Love it!!!! :)

I thought there was only one of any real importance, Talisker! What are the
other two?   And do they come with a Leica? :)
