Two weeks ago I wrote about a street photography outing to Portobello Road. Adam Lee and I were trying out his M3 against my M-P, a sort of on-the-hoof comparison of film and digital as a street medium. During the day we bumped into Dani Garbiatti and her sister Rafaela—and Dani was sporting one of those brass Petzval lenses we’ve all heard so much about but never tried. At the time I couldn’t include one of the pictures we took of Dani with her camera. Now it is in (see above) and I have added it to the article.
