Headed to Beijing

I am headed to Beijing in a few days, and bringing along one camera - a Leica M7 - and plenty of rolls of Kodak Portra film. The Leica allows me a spontaneity that I don't typically have with my Hasselblad; there's a formality and deliberativeness that comes with using the Hasselblad. I'm looking forward to shaking things up a little visually, and breaking some of my reflexive patterns of seeing. I imagine I'll be stumbling around Beijing most of the time, jet-lagged and weirdly overwhelmed. The rangefinder might translate that perceptual overload well.
