I told you so.

When the M240 arrived, I predicted right here on this blog that after its successor is eventually released the M240 will quickly be forgotten, whereas the M9 will continue to be coveted by many.

Although some readers supported my prediction, many directed a lot of anger at me.

Well, interestingly, the next M is now being called the M10 by Leica.

It’s as if the M240 never existed.

Illuminated.

A shaft of late afternoon window light coming in on a low angle made her eyes stand out, and made this shot possible.

Christmas Passed.

Explanation:  A little word play, post-Christmas, inspired by the Ghost (of Christmas Past) in Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The gentleman with the red scarf passing by the #demellopalheta window appropriately seems straight out of the Victorian era.
