Congratulations on getting the 21mm lens - a fantastic lens at a superb

This afternoon I was at Stade de France here in Paris for the France v
Canada rugby game (sorry Ted/Robert, Canada lost!). I shot most of a
roll of film with the 21 - I decided to go for 'atmosphere' shots as I
was way too far from the action for anything else. The negs are drying
as I type.

My pictures for week 47 have little in common other than they were all 
taken with my newly acquired Voigtlander 21mm lens. I have previously 
owned their 50mm and found it wanting, but this one I am really pleased 

The first four pictures are all from Zurich and environs and all taken 
with the Leica M6, 21mm Voigtlander Color Skopar lens on Fuji Acros.

First, Andy's Tierhüüsli pet shop. Andy was a tram driver for 35 years 
before deciding to quit that and open a pet shop in Zurich's Langstrasse

area. His dog serves as marketing director:

Rathausbrücke is one of several bridges across the Limmat river in the 
old city:

A fountain on Helvetiaplatz in Zurich, also near Langstrasse:

The shore of Lake Zurich in Feldmeilen, a small town about 2 km from my 

The last picture was not actually taken in week 47, but a couple of 
weeks earlier. It is the very first picture I took with the 21mm lens 
after buying it at my favourite Leica shop, RG Lewis in London:
(film: Fuji Press 800)

Despite all the Minolta signs, the heart of this shop is Leica (note the

street signs from Wetzlar/Solms), and the glass cases are full of 
various Leica goodies, from old LTMs to M6s and M7s. This is one of 
those shops where I am willing to pay a little more than mail order just

for the service and the pleasure of a chat with the gentleman you see in

the picture.

and comments/critique are welcome and appreciated as always.
