Subject: [Leica] B&W - hope for the future?

In a week of depression about Ilford, I just thought I would share this with 

In the course of this weekend both my kids asked me for B&W film for their 
cameras; both use P&S, not Leicas (well they are only about ten!). When I 
my daughter she said it produced "different" images. She was very upset when 
said she could get B&W for Adv***** cameras. (That is right isn't it?)

My son was with me at Goodwoood (more of that later) shooting roll after 
of, as he calls them "action shots", of GT40s, Lolas and the like. When he 
out of film he asked me what I had left. On being told that I only had one 
of B&W film on me, he said "I'd like to try that". Needless to say he shot 
the whole roll in probably unsuitable conditions. He wanted the images. A 
grin was on his face as yet another roll rewound itself.

The film: why, FP4+ - of course.
