wait...how in frosty hell does a guy like that have a Leica? ...

Hint: you don't have to earn a Leica. You just have to buy one.

LOL

a couple thousand more dollars and they pack some common-sense into the fancy box you get with it.

Wouldn't that be TTLC, in this case? :D

More powerful doesn't mean smarter, the idiot probably thinks he's seeing WMDs.

Or, the other idiot doesn't recognize a photoshopped image and/or a momentary point in time.

Would love to have seen the wtf? look on his face when he imported all those black images onto his computer :)

It's a Leica M6, the surprise would come when he had finished developing the negatives. :)


Cheers,

I like how he frowns to look at the camera then a big smile when shooting.

Reminds me of a $220K custom Mustang I saw in a friend's body shop with a bent frame. Scrapped. That car is not insurable.

Had 210 miles on it. $1K/mile. Guy survived the crash, but literally spun it off the road into a pole in broad daylight.

Epic money fail.

Too bad there aren't more people like him! Might find a lot of good deals on Craigslist for "broken" Leicas. :p

I like your line of thinking, time to convince rich friends to buy cameras they won't know how to use!

Besides that, every time this piece of political propaganda gets posted, the question arises whether the owner of the image gave permission for its use.
