Like master like camel

It seems that this famous saying not only applies to dogs… There are still a lot of camels in Rajasthan and they are used mainly to pull carriages loaded with all kinds of goods. Outside of the cities, they also carry huge water tanks.

Changing ISO's is done through the LCD on the Leica M9. While it is easy, it does mean that you'll lose a second doing so. I would love to have an ISO dial on the top plate, just as implemented on the Epson R-D1. In the case of this picture, I did not have time to change the ISO so got stuck at ISO160. Therefore I lowered the shutter speed and settled with 1/125th, which ensured minimum motion blur. The aperture of F2.8 allowed to have both heads in the focus zone, though not perfectly.  (click on picture for high res)
