To me
it's not about "love Leica"
(though I do love my kits)
It's rather about the photographs
made with
the synergy between
"this" gear
"these" photographers

doesn't feel like masturbation
feels like photography

granted there is a certain
masturbatory quality to photography
(self gratification)
yet, at the point that we share our views of the world
it becomes considerably more open
to sharing the pleasure as well as the pain.

Fond regards,
