"Thank you for the very interesting newsletters and the beautiful pictures.
I cannot afford a leica M 240 which I would love to buy, but I own a Leica M6 for about 15 years. So I keep on working with my Kodak Tri-x for a while an do the prints on Ilford paper. I enjoy very much reading and watching your work. I just wanted to tell you this."

Yesterday we had a whole day in Bali before our flight to Melbourne at midnight. So we hired a driver and went on a 6 hour excursion some hours up North in Bali. Read The Story Behind That Picture for more.

The new Leica facory in Wetzlar

Wetzlar, Germany, April 9-11, 2014

We went to Wetzlar to visit the old and the new factory, get some stuff serviced and meeting some nice people. We had great fun and enjoyed the fresh and healthy food in the new canteen.

The buzzing canteen with bright wide windows to the square in front of the factory. Here everybody from inside and outside the factory meets at lunchtime and enjoy healthy fresh cooked food, coffee and each others company. Leica M 240 with Leica 50mm Summicron-M f/2.0 II

Amongst familiar faces in the canteen we stumbled into lens designer Peter Karbe. He has gotten new glasses, and he is very happy to work in the new bulding. Joy made sure we did an Instragram selfie (as everybody does in 2014), and after a short discussion about the flare above Peter's head, Peter agrees that flare can look cool (as long as it is somebody elses lenses).
