Awesome. Let's see some of those shots!
Well here's the first bunch up on my Flickr:
Not typical travel shots I'll admit but I'm quite pleased with some of them. There are some more to come. I took more colour film than I thought so I'm waiting for them to come back from the processor.
How did the minimal kit approach work? Well, I think. There were four of us doing the sightseeing thing and not a lot of time to stop so a fully automatic camera was very handy in the end, there just wasn't time for more careful picture taking and I put all my effort in composition and let the camera work out everything else.
They are all hand held or braced against a wall or similar so the low light ones came out pretty well considering. Lots and lots of walking and getting very thirsty. If I could have changed anything it would have been to wear better shoes!
Some pics are sharper than others. Manual focus would have been nice, wider than 35mm would have been handy but all in all it was ok, I didn't miss too many pics.
My favourite picture so far is this one, the stairwell at the old apartment we were staying in:
And here is Henri Cartier Bresson's first Leica behind glass at the HCB Foundation:
Will report back when I have more scans.
Any comments, criticisms welcome (gushing praise also very welcome).

Great photos! I'm actually writing this from on board a TGV en route to Paris... and I'm taking the exact same equipment you did
