Recently, I’ve been excited to post pics taken with my Leica M 240. I still have my Leica M Monochrom and love how it renders black and white pictures. We were in New Orleans and one evening a friend and I took a walk down Bourbon street. I was amazed how crazy it was even on a Tuesday night. It’s definitely, a great town to take pictures.

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been taking a lot of pics with my Leica M Monochrom. I’m sure I will eventually pick-up one of my other cameras but right now the Monochrom is glued to my hand.

We were walking through the crowd at the Taste of Madison and out of the corner of my eye I caught these two enjoying time together. I’m not sure what was stranger, seeing these two showing affection for one another at a family friendly event or that they were lying next to a porta-potty?

The one thing I really enjoy about my Leica M9 is the ability to shoot without a flash in low light. This is only possible because I can shoot at very low apertures (i.e. f/1.4 or f/2.0). The only down side with the Leica M9 is its poor high ISO if shooting in color.
This picture of my nephew was taken only with light from a few lanterns and street lights.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and black Friday. We decided to do our shopping online. No crowds, no stress, same prices.
As I was walking around the Lincoln Memorial with a friend I was trying to find someone interesting to take a picture of. Eventually, I found this couple enjoying a cup of coffee while resting on the steps of the memorial. They seemed unaware of everything around them besides each other.
