My buddy got a new lens so we tried it out on my camera….
For camera enthusiasts like us, this lens & camera combo is the absolute holy grail.
That’s my Leica M2 Black Paint, first production batch from 1958, with my friend’s Nippon Kogaku (Nikon) 5cm f/1.1 Leica Screw Mount version (ltm) also from 1958.
Less than 1600 of the black M2 were made, and only about 140 of the Leica thread mount version of the lens were made…
Had to geek out and share. It doesn’t get much rarer than this.

This is the last photo I took off Ace.
It was just about two weeks ago when I was visiting my parents and family in Tennessee.
I made sure to give him a big hug, and thanked him for always being my little buddy.
Thank you all for letting me share Ace with you, and thank you so much for the support and kind words.
Thanks Jason Dolley. I have already donated!
I have strep throat, so I had to use only semi-cold water, and I used it to water my plants at the same time.

You grow up watching and learning from the characters and heroes that inspire you. The people who portray them, having seemingly always existed in your perspective, feel more like a fact of life or a force of nature —one that you always count on to be there the rest of your days. But one day you realize that these heroes are not in fact immortal, that their bodies and minds are bound to the same realities as you or me. But its what they did with their efforts, time, and dreams that will echo though our lives forever. One day, may we all hope to be the heroes to others.
