Subject: [Leica] Hey B.D., what kind of B&W film do you like

I am the first to admit I don't know silver rich from dirt poor. I wanted to
shoot black and white I pulled a roll of Tri-X out of the drawer and put it
in the camera - starting in about 1958, and continuing until about 18 months
ago. Oh, I occasionally shot some Plus-X a zillion years ago, and some Delta
3200 now and then. Oh, yah, back when there was the occasional role of Kodak
Recording film, which was what preceded the Delta. Beyond that, what can I
tell you? Oh, right - if you really have to shoot outside in bright
daylight, Fuji Acros is really nice.

Yours in yearning for days of yore -
