Munich-Feldherrenhalle. A young couple visiting is overwhelmed from all those new impressions, daydreaming with open eyes recapitulating their impressions. They searched a huge granit plate, part of this monumental building, which provides pleasant warmth reflecting the late afternoon sun beams. What a friendly impression - that was not always so, Adolf Hitler started his political carreer from exactly this place!

This is photographed in the smalles and most intelligent Camera Bag EVER - built by Goldpfeil for CONTAX G1. The next year came the G2 and Goldpfeil with a little bigger bag for it.
No, I can't show the WB650 here, because the photo is actually taken with it. I am laying out a small leather bag based on that fabulous CONTAX G1 bag.
