I admit it. I always go back. They say you shouldn’t but as Oscar famously said, I can resist anything except temptation. Somewhere in my head I heard the whisper, “Go on, you know you want to……” And I know I can pick her up any time.
So my wife and I went into town to do some chores and I smuggled my beloved in the back of the car. Every now and again I just have to play with the M9. And yes, the Noctilux was my first choice lens. So no birds today, just a few images taken as we did our chores. I get far fewer scores with my M9 – all that manual fiddling….. I either miss the moment or the critical focus. I always try to zone focus – F4 or maybe a stop either side and set the distance to about 3m. It is alas a bit hit and hope, especially if I shoot from the hip or the 1-pack that protects my hidden 6-pack. Some are passable and here are today’s survivors.
