Leaving the comfort zone

In the last few weeks I was trying to leave my comfort zone. I have learned that my smallest camera is the best one for for a kind of photography I'm still unexperienced in: street photography. Taking pictures of people and everyday things is far easier the less bulky your camera is. And since I was using my old Leica IIIf from 1951, most of these images are B/W.

@flyingwind风飞扬: Not just "-like": it's a BW400CN film (ISO 400, B/W), self-developed.

Really like the b&w here...contrast is the spirit of B&W, my opinion, and only film makes it comfortable

@Z: I really got hooked on this. :-)

You have to think small. Well, you don't HAVE to, but that is what happens to me when I use my cell phone. I don't try to go for the big shots, I start to see the potential in small shots. I think shots like this one are perfect in b&w.
