I called this post “That Moment” I actually call the picture “Emily Laughs.”
Let me explain. Some of you may have read my blog already. If not here is a story. The Nikon D700 had just hit the market. A mate had one and it was the “all-singing-all-dancing” camera at that time. I nearly purchased one. I just happened to start reading about Leica and the M6. That’s what I wanted my dream camera from the 80’s. I then found out they had a new Leica MP an all manual do it yourself total contrast to the Nikon. What I knew best then was film. I chose the Leica. Then the feelings of “Have I done the right thing?” started to worm their way into my head. To make a long story short when I saw this picture, It was that moment I knew I had made the right choice.
