No, it's not the pot stores, hockey riots or rain that makes me wish I was there. It's the announcement of the first 'Leica Boutique' in Canada, which opens at Broadway Camera this week. A place for lots of quiet reverence and awed gawkery of precision German optics.
My first thought on learning of this was that Leica was attempting to take advantage of Vancouver's formidable Asian market and, sure enough, it turns out that Broadway Camera offers service in 'Mandarin, Cantonese and Japanese.' As well as English and French of course.
If anyone goes to this opening, please drop me a line.
