The Café du Soleil was my ‘local’ when we lived in Geneva, Switzerland. It was close to the office and I would often go there with colleagues for a “quick pint” after work. These stairs connect the main, downstairs area and a smaller upstairs room. After a few beers they can be a bit daunting to navigate.
They also do an amazing cheese fondue.

The sun was streaming in through glass sliding doors when I noticed the shadows it was casting of objects on a glass topped coffee table.

As we come to the end of another year it’s time for me to go through my annual ritual of picking a few (actually 12) of my favorite pictures from 2018, starting with black and white. This year 9 of the 12 pictures are from film cameras.
I was in New York City and decided to wander around Tudor City and take some pictures. Overall it was a pleasant experience and I was happy with the results.
Of course at first it was difficult to get used to the lack of an exposure meter and only manual focus, but after a while I got used to it. It was a cloudy day and the exposure didn’t vary much so I only rarely had to change the settings.
I’m still not keen on having to trim the film leader, nor am I happy that the rangefinder and viewfinder are separate and the rangefinder window in particular is rather “squinty”. Apart from that I have no complaints. It’s small and with the collapsible Serenar lens fits easily in a pocket. It’s clearly a very well made camera.
I also have a Leica M2 that I’ve never used. Can’t wait to give it a try.
Taken at Grand Central Terminal during a trip into New York City. One is clearly a police officer, and the other (the woman) also seems to be some kind of official judging by the device attached to her belt. Obviously something is happening, but I have no idea what.
