Bought Me A Leica Lens Hood

Bought a lens hood that I have needed for a long time. A hood for my Leica R 60mm f2.8. Ugly thing and expensive but very necessary, especially in the harsh sun of Southeast Asia and the dump. You always feel screwed when buying these specialty photo items, hoods, filters and the like. I ended up paying $47.81 USD plus another $11 USD for shipping from Germany. There is another one selling on eBay right now for a ridiculous $85 USD plus $20 shipping. A ton of money for very little. I will use this next trip. It will protect my lens, stop some flare and might improve image contrast a bit.
