    Trix 400 Shot with a Leica M7 in the days before I got my D4. We had to do 2 takes as the dog ran under the bar the first time. Thea and Sunny getting a Natch title in agility. There are days I wish that I did not have to sell that camera, but the d4 was much more practical for my business needs. I think though if I ever go to shooting film I will get another leica with a 35mm sumicron, I just really loved that combo....of course I have also been toying with getting an old medium format film body.

    The main issue I have though is no real room for a darkroom in the house, so I would be sending things off for development. No place to store old negatives and prints either.

    When you were shooting film, you had to get the shots first and then wait to see if you had gotten them right later. It's not like the machine gun shooting today where you can blast of a hundred and look immediately whether you got the right one or not. A shot like this one proves that you trusted your abilities and the camera enough to walk away later and be sure you had what you needed. Great shot, too.

    Thanks Roger I do not and have never used the pray and spray, though I will do 3-4 frame bursts at times. But the waiting and allowing yourself the surprise of nailing a shot was always wonderful.
