Thank you Ted for the kind words, it means a significant amount to me 
coming from you.  Yes, the fish market is wonderful. If only it 
didn't mean waking up at 4:30am to catch the 5:00 train, I'd go there 
more often! :-)

I'd like to visit again with my Leicas and see what difference the Ms 
will have against the SLR that I was using. I'd have to shoot NPH/NPZ 
because the lighting there is so horrible.  Any one have good 
suggestions for taking photos in industrial lighting 
(halogen+fluoros+arc)? Black and white is always an option, but then 
you wouldn't get the wonderful red colors of the fish flesh and 
blood. Yum.
