An M9, a carpet, and a clever wife.
6 months ago

Just a little slice of life...

I've been in a bit of a Leica-drought. So, I decided to carry my M9 with 35mm Summicron this weekend, shopping for a rug. We saw a nice one, and I went to photograph it. Here's our exchange

Wife: "Hey, Ansel, why do you need to use that camera here, just use your cell phone"

Me: "Well, this will make it more beautiful"

Wife: "Hmmm. A camera won't make this rug look better or worse"

Me: "Ok, then - do you know how much we paid for this thing? I need to use it sometime!"

Wife: "Be sure you get the pattern in there, and get it in focus ok?"

(Ok, I could have used a cell phone... but I'm a man-child)

From time to time, I point my camera at the right things. This is generally when I forget everything I've learned.
