In sleepy Solms, the Leica PR guy bristled slightly when a Spanish man asked why they were partnering with Hermes and other luxury house brands. “Is the M just becoming an fashion accoutrement?”

“The Leica is a working camera. It is always about quality! Hermes is Leica. It is quality,” the PR guy said emphatically somewhat reframing the question.

The town of Solms isn’t much to see or do. Well kept lawns, pulled drapes, and some apple trees that people didn’t bother eating the apples from, but kindly piled up around the trunk. I picked up one of the apples and ate it as I wandered the streets. And then spent the rest of the day wondering if I’d get sick and misinterpreted every turn of my stomach.

Alternate Text:

Solms, Germany, is a place
where the train guards still
get lowered by hand.

A frazzle-haired woman
springs into action as the
train approaches.
