St.Louis, MO

Brand new amateur with a Leica- previously used Olympus SLR and recently a digital (not the same!). Have just begun to understand what shooting with a Leica really means- the solid feel, the control, the mystique and most importantly the lens. Am awaiting development of my first roll of film with an M7 35ASPH.

Thanks to all in the forum for their advice, wisdom and encouragment. I hope to learn from you all for many years and someday be able to offer my own tips based on experience.

Since you asked: A sometimes serious amateur for the past 50 or so years. Been torturing Nikons until recently, when I decided to try some Leicas for their glass. I guess I could get paid, but it is more fun to be free. I am retired and live in Welfare, Texas, and hope my place of residence is not an indication of my financial standing.


Ciao, Tony

John Abela, Astoria New York, amateur

Wish had more time to shoot, need to use more and spend less. My life time photographic achievement was getting my name mentioned as a photographer and volunteer in the book: Here is New York: a democracy of photographs. A book which documents the photographs taken by amateurs and professionals alike pertaining to 9/11. http://hereisnewyork.org/sponsors/photographers.asp
