. . . though not strictly Street Photography related (the canals do however lead to Street Photography locations), I have produced an ever growing series of videos, documenting both my change of life and my journeys around the canal system.
The video below is my latest offering.
All of my previous videos can be found on this YouTube Playlist here.
. . . well I would watch it.
. . . Here’s a short mini-review video of the Leica M5 that I’m currently selling on eBay.
If you’re looking to buy a used Leica M5, there are always a fine selection of used examples here on eBay

This short video always makes me chuckle, but is a constant reminder that we are only human . . .
