Why I bought the Ricoh GR10

I mentioned in a previous post that I bought a Ricoh GR10.  I’m still enjoying it and the camera is always with me in a pocket or a bag.  I have a medium format camera and a Zeiss rangefinder for my serious photos but for documenting daily life, places I visit, or people I meet then the compact GR10 is the camera to use.

This isn’t a photo destined for a gallery wall but it is a good reminder of the convenience store I visit when I cycle to the village of Seongsan for exercise.  It was taken on cheap-o film but it’s good enough.  Actually, I think I might start spending a tiny bit more money and use ISO 400 film in the camera.  That’ll get me a little faster shutter speed and/or greater depth of field.
