I'm back ... with the Leica M3

in 2015 I did much of my photography with the Sony A7 digital. Looking back I find that most of the images I took with it are technically OK - but I just don't like them. I don't like the look. So this year i have vowed to return to film and using the Leica, Contax and Rolleiflex again. This weekend I waled and biked around Sydney taking a few ics with the Leica M3 using some old Ilford 100 Pan film. Here are some of the results, developed by myself in LC29 (1+19) for 6 minutes, then scanned in using my Plustek 7500i.

A Sydney summer Saturday on the Brompton


Went for a ride on my newly-acquired Brompton M6L today, from Chatswood to Chinaman's beach and beyond. A really nice summer's day, a bit hot, but the vented shirt I bought for riding the bike worked wonders. First stage was from Chatswood to Naremburn or thereabouts, where I had my overdue morning coffee at the Forsyth cafe among the dog walkers. Got a cycling map and had worked my way down the cycle lanes of Artarmon, then it was on via the back streets of Neutral Bay and Mosman to Chinaman's beach. I followed a 'bike route' marked on the cycling map but it was a bit of a joke - almost all up and down, compared to the flat alternative of Military Rd. I'll take my chances with the traffic next time.
Had a swim at Chinaman's beach but it was a bit so-so - I felt a bit of an odd one out as there were mostly families with kids there, and the water was a bit dirty - full of litter and weeds. Afterwards, I also failed to find the showers (obvious when you know where) at the changing rooms, and ended up having a DIY shower with a water bottle filled from the tap.
From there I carried up up some track and around to Balmoral. Had intended to have lunch there, but it was still early so I hauled myself up the hill to Mosman in the sun. That was a bit of a stretch. I had planned to take my bike on the bus, but by the time I'd folded it all up (feeling very smug) the bus had gone! This was a useful learning exercise though, as I found out how to cope with the new Brompton T-Bag and also the new Kathmandu seatpost rack ($40) that I had attached (and now unattached). The T-Bag is amazing - it can carry loads of stuff and yet very easily clips on and off the bike and is instantly converted into a shoulder bag. Brilliant.
Anyway, from Mosman I carried on over to Taronga zoo, where I took the above picture. It was midday and I was getting hungry, but didn't fancy a greasy sausage roll from the wharf cafe, so continued on in to the city by ferry and ended up having beef noodles at Sea bay (the NW China restaurant) on Pitt St.
And for my final leg I took the train down to Sydenham and biked over to IKEA, where i bought a Dimpa storage bag, which is said to be the prefect cheap way of storing/carrying a Brompton by air, if supplemented with a bit of protection such as cardboard/foam.
And thus ended my Brompton trip for Saturday.
