Golden Gate Bridge, Vintage Postcard Style - Whole Lotta Leica Lens for October, the Summicron 50mm f2 v.3

I just returned from the LHSA (International Leica Society)'s annual meeting in San Francisco. I got a couple of great opportunities to shoot the Golden Gate Bridge, including a sunset shoot from the Marin Headlands.

The Summicron was my Whole Lotta Leica lens for October, and it served me very well.
I really like this vintage effect, and am considering doing a project to make a set of images like this from the various places I've visited. Could be a good winter time project when it's too nasty to get out and shoot.
