Weapons of Choice

Yes, I’m shooting this with the D800E which is a great camera but I still love the simplicity and the challenge of shooting with both of my Leica cameras.

Where is the fruit?

One of the unique things about the Leica M system is its ability to use lenses created over the past 75 years.  I recently purchased a Leica 50mm summilux version 1, built-in 1959.  Even after 50 years, this lens has phenomenal image quality and unique characteristics.

What’s in my bag – Retro Lamp

I’ve been asked a few times what I carry in my bag.  Here is a video showing what I typically carry.

I’m not sure why I was fascinated by this lamp (I posted a prior pic here).  Maybe I was just mesmerized by the color of the light and the contrast created between it and the background with my Leica 50mm noctilux.
