I usually get 1000 images from the phone, and about 500 images per Leica camera. It does not bother me that I use a phone for photography.

I received today 5 beautiful postcards! I have already 4 other cards. Only card mysteriously vanished. Did someone send a card with a car on it and the scene "looked like Cuba"?
