All dressed up and nowhere to go ... yet. So the lockdown in France still goes on, but today we can smell a breath of freedom - we can now go out to a max of 20kms and for 3 hours. Before today it was 1 hour and 1km. So it’s time to dust the gear off and charge the batteries, in all senses of the term and after the rugby (good job All Blacks this morning) we will head to the canal du midi #camera #leica #leicaq2 #france #gear
