Subject: [Leica] Cuba and where's the Leica images

Hi Luggers,

Thanks for your kind responses.  I went to Cuba before I had Leica M 
hence no Leica images .......  Having said that, Canon F-1's are still my 
workhorse cameras.   I did use my M cameras to take some photographs of 
world renown orthopaedic spine surgeon Dr. Robert Winter as he did 
surgery in our hospital this morning.  I mainly use it for photographing 
dignitaries during radio interviews and I'm using my M kit more and more 
but it's not the best option for much of my work....   I'm trying to do a 
series on old Quito primarily using M but have had a hard time keeping up 
with my day to day work lately, so I haven't gotten very far on the 
project.  Besides that, there are too many riots and too much tear gas as 
of late downtown.
