@Bob Will be the M9-P apparently. Sapphire glass, yes, but no LED-illuminated framelines and without a red dot. Plus with an even higher price, I'm unsure whether it'll be for me.

100% on the M9 saving project, 2% on the 50mm Lux project. Goal is still Christmas! #Leica #saving

@Bjorn If I were choose between the M9 & M9-P, I would rather go for the Standard M9 the specification wise pretty much the same & the M9-P are just Leica MP look a like as well the Saphire LCD Glass that makes it very expensive.

I am thinking about a colleague who was killed last night when struck by a speeding drunk driver, during an investigation of an earlier motorcycle crash fatality. Officer Will's camera was just one piece of his equipment that was scattered for many yards/meters along the roadway.

The drunk driver, who had driven around a barricade of emergency vehicles before striking the officer, is in custody.

I'm going to be stuck in Afghanistan forever! Our flight out of here was canceled for weather and we have to start over with a new trip ticket which puts us behind everyone else that WAS behind us.

@hikingmike

I was there for 3 weeks just prior to the Russian invasion waiting for engine parts.
When the parts finally turned up, they proved to be defective with the engine periodically stalling and we had to get towed through Iran for a couple hundred miles to Tehran and more parts.

What area were you in. I would love to see some of these structures like the one in you pic before they collapsed. We have some around here at Bagram but not as big as your pic.

I believe the Fort was in Kabul or maybe Herat, at night it was the domain of semi-wild dog packs that you could hear fighting and howling.

We were all over the place, coming up from India/Pakistan over the Khyber Pass and eventually back into Europe.

Those photos were taken with an old Minolta-P and I'm sure the film was cooked due to prolonged extreme heat exposure.

Hot hot hot! And as it is a school holiday this week, everywhere is going to be packed this weekend I think.

On the assignment, if it helps I have no idea what I'm doing yet either! The topic choice was inspired seeing ripples in the lake in the park.

There's some thunderstorms scheduled for this weekend. Sometimes watching the lightning makes me realize how little power even the most expensive flashguns have, it would be pretty neat to use lightning as a flash. Of course, lightning doesn't include iTTL metering. :)

OMG I made it out of Afghanistan!!! I'm in Manas Kirkistan so still a long way from home but at least out of Morter-Ally :D

Trivia question: What is the 1 thing in the world that only Kirkistan has??? (I hope I've spelled Kirkistan right:lol:)
