Grown Man Style

Because you're way too old to keep wearing ironic T-shirts.
-Matt Jacobson

I met a kindred spirit on the Ginza, an American ex-pat with a keen eye, an appreciation for wabi-sabi, and a love of Leica who’s become a new friend.  

John Sypal, and his blog Tokyo Camera Style has caught the attention of like-minded camera nuts, and street photographers globally.  He stopped Kristopher and I on the street to chat, as he eyed my well worn M9 “derelict”, with more than 60K+ snaps on the counter, a very brassed housing and all new Leica guts under the hood.  While it looks like a decades old relic, this Leica was most-definitely born in the new millennium.  

As if I thought John couldn’t be any cooler, I arrived home from my holiday to find a hand done print of this picture and a copy of the mag, Nippon Camera, where John has been serializing his blog posts for the last 3 years.  Thanks John, loving your Instagram posts.
