Walking King Street in Charleston SC

This was a great weekend in Charleston during June 2016 and I was using a Double-Stroke Leica M3.  The double-stroke version, sometimes referred to as the Leica M3 DS, requires winding the lever twice to advance the film and ready the shutter.  This was an early model where Leica was concerned the friction of the rewinding might cause problems on the film.

In any event, there was a great group of people on the streets and the architecture and window reflections caught my eye.  This was a section of King Street up towards the Ordinary – my favorite restaurant on King Street!
