For years now, I’ve been traveling back to Oklahoma to visit family there. On my first trip, I had no idea what to expect and wasn’t really sure a Southern California boy was going to enjoy it much. What did they have to offer, cows?
I was so wrong. Since then I’ve come to love my visits there and take the opportunity to explore more of the area on each trip.
Ever since I heard the name, I’d always coveted a Leica. After a few years, I finally got one. A lovely M6 with a 35 Summicron asph. I shot and shot and shot and swore I’d be buried with it someday. Then digital happened.
I got a roll of Ilford Delta 100 back from the lab yesterday. I can honestly say I think my Rolleiflex might be my favorite camera ever. That’s probably sacrilege considering my absolutely love for Leica, but it’s true. There’s something special about the 6×6 negs and I definitely prefer a built in lens.
