And rain it did! Nearly all day the rain came down in steady torrents. Finally, I decided to head out braving the downpour to take some photos with a Leica Monochrome I had rented for a few days. I was so struck by this camera’s performance during my visit to the Los Angeles Leica store in July with SW, that I thought I had to try it for myself. So I donned my hat and rain poncho and headed out for a few hours.
