    A couple more from New Orleans.

    Hope none of these offend anyone.

    Reinhold this is my idea of a great street photograph. .It tells a story and identifies the location.

    The love palace dates to the early 80's in Atlanta and the others are from the early 70's on skid row. The fellow taking a drink from a bottle offered me a drink of "squeeze". What he was drinking was the liquid, methyl alcohol, squeezed from sterno. It's strained through bread giving it a cloudy appearance and is often called "smoke" or "smoke on the water". It's extremely toxic and eventually will cause blindness and death. I refused his hospitality.

    Thanks Andrew. I think #1 was with a Canon slr but don’t remember the lens. It would have been one of the old breach lock lenses in the mid 70’s. #2 was with a Leica M 2 50mm f1.2 Noctilux on Pan F )1973). I owned the lens for several years and never felt it was great for general use. It did it’s best from 1.2 to 4 and under high flare conditions. I sold it and bought another 50 Summicron v3 chich has almost as good flare control and much better resolution at normal apertures. #3 is with M2 and 35 Summilux (1960’s version) and the 4th is Rollei SL66 and 50 Distagon.

    Most of the 35 shots I’ve posted were from M Leicas. I’ve used them for over fifty years and the 6x6 were mostly Rollei SL66’s and some Rollei TLR’s. Most 2x3 or 6x7 would have been Linhof Technikas. I’ve been pretty consistent in the equipment I’ve used over the decades. I have used Nikon SLR’s a great deal since 1970. I used Canon slrs for a short period in the mid 70’s. Also used Rollei 3003’s for a few years but they were too unreliable.

    Oops! #25, I gave the data for #26. Sorry!!!

    Photo 1 of 25 was with a Rolleiflex D with 80 2.8 Xenotar. #2 was with a Leica MP and Leica 902.8 Elmarit (not the tele elmarit). I really like the old non tele version of the 90 Elmarit. #3&4 were with an MP also but don’t remember which lens.

    I’ve gone through a lot of Leica glass over fifty years and pretty much gone full circle. I really disliked the Aspheric lenses and went back to 1st generation M glass. My Kit consists of 3 M bodies now and 21 f3.4 Super Angulon, 35 v1 Summicron, 50 rigid Summicron, 75 Summilux (one of my most favorite lenses of all time ), 90 Elmarit and 90 f2 Summicron ( I think it’s from the mid 70’s). I also have a Planar f2 50 and 35 Biogon f2 that I look when I’m in a situation I want better flare control. I used a 35 Summilux I bought new in 69 but had issues with coma and flare. I lost part of my images of Richard Nixon due to the lenses inability to deal with point sources in backlighting. IMO there are much better lenses.
