Some great shots phatnev. The M6 was my first proper rangefinder... it's still my favourite film camera.

You have some great shots here... and they all suggest a lot in narrative terms, as well as they portray emotions. I like the kids looking at a phone, the window with the vase and the last one of the last series, with the girl in the foreground. Excellent work! Thanks for posting and keep them coming!

Glad ya like em Roel. I shoot with a Canon 35mm f2 LTM and a 50mm 1.5 Summarit. Bout as cheap as you can get as far as lenses.

Both sporting huge dents in the rim from where I dropped them

Film wise, these are all Tri-x(400-1600), Acros(pushed to 400), or HP5(400-1600).

I'm very impressed and pleased. Good photography and both lenses gives results I like.
I've sold Summarit 50 1.5 only because it was too heavy for me on M4-2.

proves once again that technical perfection is not always the goal. The M6 was made for you. Cheers.

I don't think it matters that much. It's the individual behind the box that matters. Probably it is even as you won't care running around with your lenses. I'm enjoying your wonderful series. Please keep sharing.

Bests,

Dropped my film off on Friday and my M6 broke on the way home. Shutter speed dial got stuck. Hopefully it'll be back in my hands soon. Here's some of the stuff I got back.

Hope it is repaired soon. I am really enjoying your street work. You obviously enjoy being around people and it shows in your work.

It works now but the shutter is sticky. Back to the shop at some point this week to talk to the guy and have it hopefully fixed for good, otherwise a HK CLA is looking likely.

Sometimes all it need is a good working though all the shutter speed. Start at 1000 and fire the all off 5 or 6 time all the way to and including B, then all the way back to 1000.
Whenever mine feels a bit sticky that sorts it out. I've heard that running through the speeds on a semi regular basis is good practice to keep it all tip top, every few rolls.
Love your work btw.
