I agree, there is a lot of Zen in this combination. Read "Zen and the art of archery" by Eugen Herrigel, the favorite book of Cartier-Bresson.

Thank you, Pan and Deardorff.

Dave you’ve pulled something entirely unexpected out of Chaddie! I bet few people stop their shopping to stop and make something out of the building.

I'm sorry, but I do not agree, the focus should be on the other eye. I focused without the (separate) rangefinder. In portraits I like to have the focus on the eye that is closest to the camera. The other portrait is better.

Considering it is a guesstimation, being off by 5-10 cm, i would consider it very accurate.

Yes, that is true! I have a "carpenter's eye" as we say here in The Netherlands. My grandfather was a carpenter.
