This is my Leica IIIf RD, passed down to me by my father who bought it after WWII. I just had a complete CLA of the body and the 35mm F3.5 Summaron and they work like a dream. The portrait of my son was shot on the first roll after I got the camera back.

I love shooting with this camera because it slows me down and makes me thing. The tactile experience of turing the knobs and making the settings is very satisfying and of course the images are lovely with the right glass (I also have a 50 f2 an 85 f2.8 and a 135 f3.5)

Things I don't like? The finder field of view is only suitable for 50mm. I don't like using accessory viewfinders because of parallax corrections I have to think about all the time. I also don't like having to carry a meter around but such is life :-)

I got my beloved Leica IIIf back from a full CLA at Authorized Camera Repair in Willow Grove, PA. They also did an internal cleaning on the 35mm Summaron.

I couldn't wait to get our and put a roll through it. My son tok a photo walk on Father's day and I captured this portrait of him on Neopan 400. I couldn't be happier with the image!

Ah yes, Mobil Oil originally Standard Oil Company of New York after Teddy Roosevelt broke up Rockefeller's Standard Oil. Now it seems that these large companies are agglomerating together again. Where is Teddy when you need him! From my neck of the woods a fully preserved Mobil station (https://plus.google.com/108160569228914160735/posts/UxYCycEPegY)

I recently took a short trip to Mojave, CA for business. I knew I wouldn't have much time to shoot, but I took my Yashica FX-2 with a roll of Tri-X anyway figuring I could grab an opportunity here and there.

This was one of those opportunities. I knew the Joshua trees in the foreground with the wind farm in the background would be an interesting image. I could have hoped for some dramatic skied, but it was simply not to be the case and there was nothing I would do.

I took a "safety shot" with my iPhone at the same time since the Tri-X was many years expired. I've also posted that shot (not in this forum) which I processed with a dark red filter effect. I like both shots and they are very different.

Shot and processed a second roll through my Minolta Hi-Matic 9. This one was Fomapan 100. This is the second and last roll of this film I have, this one was developed in D76. I am not impressed with this film. The Fomopan 400 had finer grain in my opinion that this 100 speed! This is especially true in the skies, where the grain is big and chunky. I felt the same about the first roll I shot and processed (That one in Adorama liquid developer)

I just picked up several rolls of expired Tri-X very cheap and I have a good stock of Ultrafine 125 and 400 which has always given me good results.

A wonderful little hotel in one of the best neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. Rooms are small and simple, clean and comfortable. The hotel is beautifully decorated with a modern feel. Amenities of the hotel are minimal, but in this neighborhood that is a non issue. Breakfast was fresh and delicious and the staff was always ready to cheerfully serve. I read some complaints about noise from the surrounding restaurants and clubs, but I can honestly say it was a non issue in my room (situated near the middle of the building but with a window). My single complaint? WIFI is free but disconnects every time your device sleeps. Annoying but certainly not a deal breaker. No doubt I would stay here if I visit Buenos Aires again.

This place is crazy, let's just get that out of the way. Always a long wait on the phone, in person, whatever. Nevertheless, they are experts and they stand behind their work and the parts they sell. If it is VW related they either have it or can get it.
