These bird sellers usually hang around temples and walk the streets of Yangon offering the locals a convenient way to get good karma / merit. A typical sparrow sells for about 500 Kyat (33 cents) and according to one seller I talked to, astrologers (soothsayers) recommend releasing birds to avoid bad luck “if I free you once, may you free me 10 times”. #leica#leicam6#leicam#kodakfilm#yangon#myanmar#burma#leicaimages
Leica Summicron 35mm first version 8 elements Canada vs Germany. Both of these are much rarer in black and although the silver for this lens is beautiful, black just takes the trophy. Many refer to these as Black Paint while in fact they are Black Chrome, Black Paint ones do exist but are not so easily found in good condition. I’ve already done a comparison and explained their differences, for this post I’ll do a ‘similarity’ that leads to a simple conclusion - if you shoot 35mm, GET ONE, whichever country of origin. Out of all Leica’s 35mm to date this lens strike the best balance of size, weight, sharpness even by today’s standard, and has that vintage quality look to the images which is to die for. Although it’s generally favored to be used for black and white photos, it also shoots beautiful vintage color. But, I just can’t not fault a lens, otherwise there would be no excuse to buy anything else, this lens does suffer from little flare, which depends on your taste, some would consider it artistic, but others would say it’s this gem’s weak point................. #🔴 #leica#summicron
Did you know that the internal clock on the #Nikon 35Ti is programmed to go up to the year 2030? Were Nikon's engineers that optimistic that they they thought they would be in the 2020s? Or did they think there shouldn't be any left working to see see 2031?😅
