Corbin Visited Our CSA farm today!

We are part of a CSA again this year. (For those not in the know CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture which means that we buy a share in the crop that comes from the farm and once a week we get a lovely box of whatever is ready to eat that week.) The CSA that we are a part of this year is Glorious Organics, and having been part of a csa in one form or another for 15ish years I can honestly say that this one is the absolute best! A++++ Would Buy Again :)

Having both grown up on farms but now raising a child in the city, M & I really want to make sure that Kiddo has a strong connection to farming and where food actually comes from. As part of that today we drove out to Aldergrove with Corbin to visit our food and partake in the harvest dinner, and as you can see from the photos the kid had a blast!

Film is not dead!!!

So in case you didn’t know I am a huge Leica Fanatic! And┬áLeica Is celebrating 100 years this year. For a camera company that is pretty ridiculous to think that they have been about making cameras and what not for a 100 years.

Seriously The first photograph was taken only 187 years ago but the first really comercial process of daguerreotypes weren’t really even a thing for another 10 years, and film like we know it today wasn’t until 1889ish. I mean other than Kodak I am not sure of any other longer lasting camera company then Leica.

To celebrate Leica has released a new 100% mechanical Leica M Rangefinder 35mm film camera!

This camera has nothing that it doesn’t need. Seriously not a battery, no light meter, not anything that isn’t essential. Which I totally take as film is not dead! Seriously Have you shot a roll of film this week/month/year/ever? Have you ever used a camera that didn’t meter? Do you even know about the Sunny 16? You only have two controls (technically three because you are still choosing the speed of your film but that isn’t really a dial or anything) Shutter from Bulb to 1/1000th and your aperture ring on whatever lens you have on.

They also announced a bunch of new lenses and made some old ones silver :)

Noctilux-0.95-Silver

Summilux-1.4-35

To buy any of this will still set you back roughly the same price as a moderate hatchback car but FILM anew!

In fact this does a heck of lot less than the older Leica M7 in terms of features ETC.

BUT FILM IS NOT DEAD! Is the take away that I am taking :)

Picking on Complete Strangers

So even though the lens is battered and bruised from the drug dealer kicking it seems to be working just fine! It is kind of randomly slow on focusing especially on close up things I think, but it is random so I is hard to tell. For things that are in focus it seems just as sharp or sharper than before the foot incident.
