When I was a fledgling professional photographer I worked for a couple of seasons at a well known holiday camp as a photographer. 的standard issue camera was a Leica M1 with a 35mm lens. During that time I learned a lot! Not least being that the camera had to be used without thinking about the mechanics. Composition, speed 和 salesmanship were paramount! 我很快就习惯了相机，并发现它简单易用，非常适合工作。那是1960年代，但尼康和哈苏则使崭露头角的摄影师眼花azz乱。几年过去了，直到最近几年我才发现自己使用了各种照相工具包，直到发现完全数字化的东西为止。最近徕卡M1出现了：我抓住了它并安装了35mm镜头，摄影的魔力又回来了！如此强大的魔力使它获得了新的显影槽，并重新发现了从螺旋形剥离漂亮负片的乐趣！ 的Leica is such a simple instrument that my mind is taken up solely with examining my surroundings for images 和 suddenly realising their possibility through that bright seductive viewfinder. I fear that I might turn into a Leitz nerd, the camera just 感觉s so good in use that 我很想购买更现代的模型，也许是m2或M4, then of course, I can 感觉 my feet on the slippery slope as I contemplate the lenses available. I fear that I am lost!
