By the time the camera came in and I got out the door on this, the first day I've had it, I had about an hour of watery grey winter light left. I kind of like the paired yellow/green subjects I stumbled across. And as for the Noctilux, I bolted it on the camera because it's been a challenge to love on the M8, and I wanted to see if I had a higher hit rate with the M9 for any reason. It's not like I went out and *bought* a Noctilux to take digital pictures of sweepy-brush things, I bought it years ago when it was my magical secret way to get to use film with tighter grain than T-Max 3200 even in dim bo?tes. You don't like the light on those bristles, or the stoplight/hanger/building pattern? I thought they were pretty neat. Here, would you prefer a nice picture of a laughing Tony Shalhoub being interviewed by a man in his underwear? http://www.flickr.com/photos/jbm0/4159338282/sizes/o/in/set-72157622813272167/ I got those, too.
