I have been following your website for more than 5 years now. I first stumbled upon it when I was beginning my interest of photography during college. Through the years the daily inspirations and gear reviews have kept me coming back every week.
I just returned from a two-month trip across Spain. I had the amazing opportunity to hike the Camino de Santiago, walking more than 500 miles from the border of France to the western coast of Spain. Traveling across a country on foot is a unique way to ensure that you experience everything a country has to offer, from the food, the language, and of course the scenery. While walking the Camino you also have the opportunity to meet and talk to people from across the world who all the share the same goal. On the trip I carried a Leica m4 and an Olympus xa. The xa was in the waist belt of my hiking pack and I used it primarily for snapshots along the trail. I pulled the Leica out for any notable shots and for all the portraits I shot on the trip.
The lens I had on my Leica was the tiny Voightlander 35mm f/2.5 color skopar. I shot nine rolls of Arista Premium 400asa (poor man’s tri-x), developed in D-76 and scanned with an Epson V600.
The three shots were all from the m4.
