How can you "love" the looks of a camera, leica, or other type of
MACHINE, without immediate reference to the HUMAN that designed it.  

Do you hang a print on the wall because it is fibre based and nicely
framed?.  No, of course not.  

Incidentally, the material of construction dictates design parameters,
like roundness, radii, etc. Just thought I'd remind you.  A machine is
a machine and is built by another machine.
