Attending a Leica M Workshop

(This article was “lost” and found on a laptop of mine from 2 years ago, so since it was never posted I am sharing it now. I found MANy old articles that were lost and will post some of them over the next month or so along with the new posts. These lost posts were accidentally “lost” so feel I should post them as many have some great images, info and stories. Enjoy! – Steve)
My name is Patrice Ouellet. I am a long time fan of your site. I live in Canada, province of Quebec. I would like to share with you a few pictures taken during a Leica M Vision workshop held in Kamouraska (Province of Quebec, Canada). It was great shooting with the M9-P and one lens only. I picked the Summicron. After a few hours you start seeing the world through the vision of one lens only and then you get more inspired. We had the chance to have Tom Smith with us from Leica Akademie. All the gorgeous lenses were there, including the fabulous Noctilux. Unfortunately, we did not get to see and try the new M9-M. The more I think about it the more I think this camera is for me.
The minimalist approach (one camera, one lens, black and white only), I feel that’s when the best shots come out as you totally forget about the camera and focus on creating a vision.
Thanks Steve and long life to your site.
