Hi Adrian,

A very Merry Christmas over there where it's already Christmas day. I trust
you have a good one and the New Year brings more of those interesting
assignments in the mysterious lands of the Orient.

Thank you very much.

That's one of the interesting things when using an M camera, it makes you
look a bit more intently at subjects you thought you had shot to the end.
And just when you say to yourself, "Well that's done!" It always seems that
you put the M back to your eye for one last look and the response is,
"Jeeeeesh look at that!"  And there is just one more exciting moment you
missed the first time, but now captured because that M has made you stop,
look and listen to your feelings once again.

Yep and there are photographers who get the same kind of feeling with other
makes. However, it has always intrigued me that I get the extra frame magic
moment only when I'm working with my M6's.

Have a good day and New Year,
