"I bought a second hand Nikon FE in Copenhagen and a couple rolls of Kodak Tri-X 400. I had been traveling for about 3 weeks then, with my trusty Nikon D700 and 28-300, 135 f2, 50 f1.4 and 14-24 shooting landscapes, street and architecture. But when I took the first frame with the FE and cocked the shutter for my next frame, I felt alive; I felt refreshed. I began shooting everything, and for some reason, I felt comfortable- like I could trust the camera to produce the images I saw in my mind.
After a long break, I recently returned from Scotland, and the results I got from my Leica M7 were stunning, the color rendition, and general feel of the whole photograph just blew me away. It was then I knew film is something I could never give up."
