Life with Leica, book, cigar and coffee

Life with Leica, book, cigar and coffee
"A man in a light-colored suit and hat struggles slowly toward the top of a hill. Behind him rises the smkestack of th optische Weke Ernst Leitz factory. When he reaches the top he opens the tripod of an awkward plate camera with leather bellows. The day is unusually warm, and his asthma is giving him no peace. He takes all eight images on the plates contained in a large leather case. Then he looks at the camera and tries to imagine it smaller-a great deal smaller, and without the tripod. He goes further and imagines it fits in his pocket, and without plates, but loaded instead with film like the kind used in the movies.

And he asks himself: But what would I take photos of?
Oskar Barnack, the next day, asks for meeting with his boss, the entrepreneur Ernst Leitz, already world famous for microscope and telescope. "I have an idea. If we could...."
"Go on, let me see."
Thus was born the Leica. And with it a new way of telling the story of the world with images. Without it, the tweetieth would have been a truly shortsighted century."

~ from LEICA Witness to a century

"Smoking cigars is like a falling in love; first you are attracted to shape; you stay with it for its flavor; and you must always remember never, never, let the flame go out"

~ from Winston Churchill
