A Big, Huge Thanks!

Over a week ago, I had the majority of my Leica equipment trashed by a negligent security guard who just allowed the bag they were in to fall off the end of the conveyor, turn upside down mid air and finally fall to the floor by his feet, after he had X-Rayed it. I need to add that under instructions, I was at the other end of the machine still putting on camera bags and other belongings into the machine as this happened.

The aim of my post isn’t about this though. After I Tweeted what had happened, I was overwhelmed and so touched by the number of people who offered up Leica cameras and lenses to help me out and to allow me to carry on working. I couldn’t possibly take any of you up on your extremely kind offers, but I just wanted each and every one of you to know how touched and appreciative I am. From the bottom of my heart, thank you all.

  1. I thought the Leica was for your holidays. A new found respect for you using it on assignments sir!

    • Not at all! Back in the day when we shot film, I’d do around 80% of my assignments on my Leica rangefinders (Had an M6, M4-2 and later on an M4-P).
      I wasn’t impressed with the M8 or M8.2 but the M9 is a great camera so it’s part of my working kit. Definitely not a holiday camera!!
