I haven't touched my digital cameras in a while. TRI-X is bizarre and great and full of sand-like grain and I love it. My binder of negatives is growing, but I'm finding that some genres of photography I practice are better suited to high resolution colour raw files, so I've decided to pick up my Leica M again and use that for colour work where appropriate.
As for Japan, I think I've settled on a good gear compromise that is also very lean. I'll be taking my Leica M Typ 240 and M7 bodies and swap over the 35mm lens when I want to shoot TRI-X sometimes.
Enjoy some pictures though. It's a pretty wild variation in this blog.

An impressive camera that doesn't seem to fit rolls of film. These are on Ilford Delta 400. Once again does not live up the the tone of Tri-X.
