ph: courtesy of LeicaOf all the things I packed for my Paris trip last week, the most essential—by far—was my Leica C digital camera. As an aesthete, I was initally drawn to the camera's beautiful design—it's one good looking gadget. But it more than delivers on the technical front, and it's super slim, lightweight and Wi-Fi enabled. Here, a few of my most lovely moments in the City of Light.
