Time For a Shot I Love

The Kid, by Reed A. George
Leica IIIC (ca. 1946), Leica Summitar 5.0cm f2 Lens (ca. 1951)
Sometimes I get a shot that helps me remember why I do all of this photography stuff. Not perfectly sharp, a grab shot. But, this is why. I didn't even bother to crop the scan.
And, I simply love shooting an old Barnack-style Leica. I couldn't care less that it has no meter, separate windows for focus and framing, and dim ones at that. It simply works.
Thanks for putting up with a little self-indulgence on my part.
