Discovering Lisbon with a Leica M2 – part 1

New Sidekick

During my staying in Lisbon I spent some good time in the streets, taking pictures of strangers and getting lost in a wonderful city. When my good friend Diogo told me about his Leica M2 I was thrilled. I played with a Leica M9 in the past, but never with an M2.

He gave me the camera equipped with a Voigtlander 35mm f2.5, a couple of rolls of Kodak Tri-X 400 and I was totally set. I have to confess that I had to cheat a little bit during this street session but I’ll explain to you later.
