Hi all.

We discovered a fantastic garden off the beaten track in deepest Co. Kerry. I find it strange, in such a small island, that there are still these gems we didn't know about.

My cupboard (closet?) is full of great Leica film kit - SM, Ms and Rs. So I've taken the considered decision to shoot more on film as I have a great mail-order film processor up in Co. Sligo.

My oldest Leica camera (s/n 4387) was made in 1926/27. Looks like a Leica III, but was factory- converted from the earlier model. You can read its story here:

So I took it down to Kerry, and this is what I got:

No wonder the 50mm Elmar lasted so long...
