Memorial Day Tomorrow - Planning to Shoot with Wartime Leicas

Wartime Leica IIIC
 
I'm going out today, Memorial Day, with a good friend. We're going into DC, where we'll photograph events on the National Mall. I'm going to shoot only wartime Leica gear, or at least gear that would have been in use at the time. That is, my kit will include a 3.5cm Elmar lens from 1937. The remaining pieces, two Leica IIICs and a 5.0cm Elmar, were all made during the years of WWII.
 
I'm really looking forward to seeing what I can do with this kit. I hope to have some images to share from the day soon.
