Washington, Portland, Budapest

I started this gallery for test pictures taken with the Leica X2 in Washington, D.C., as I wanted a much smaller camera than my D800 for use in Saudi Arabia, where extreme caution and discretion are strongly advised for doing any photography at all.

We have since traveled to Portland, Oregon, for a week to visit family, and I am keeping the Leica but have also picked up another compact, this time with a zoom. (I have a feeling I'm going to end up with several "covert" cameras before we leave the States for Riyadh ;-)). So this is no longer a Washington/Leica X2 gallery, but more of a home leave with a couple of cameras gallery.
