The ambience in your portraits is coming out through my monitor, filling this room.
Your bike is a whole novel. I mean; where is the guy? He has a puncture and the bottles are empty. Has he run off with another woman? Does his wife know? What are they doing?

To Light & Love
Thanks, Helen and Lloyd. The elderly lady is the mother of a dear friend. She understands English, but speaks only Russian. She picked Tilly up and started cooing all sorts of sweet Russian diminutives to her.
Helen, for more of Tilly, look here:

John, it looks like a flair from the camera, It is a 7 blade lens though. I don't think that I have ever seen one; hexagonal is my favorite. I enjoyed the piano playing also.
[quote=gero;115069] It's not flare from the camera it's the opening in the top of the Vortex.
Toto, we're not in Kansas any more....
The CV 15/4.5 has ten (10) aperture blades.

Wowzers. I don't know what you do with your shots Steve but my pictures never look like that. I keep telling myself its the lens =).
Here are some shots I took with my new M8 =). I'm still getting used to the rangefinder.
Both shot with the 28mm Elmarit:
Thank you Lloyd! I definitely feel my M8 shots are more rewarding when I get the ones I like. When I had the D700, I felt like it was more the camera that created the picture than me. I felt like fraud lol. But then again, I'm still an amateur so I probably didn't know how to use the D700 to its full potential. Anyway, I love my M8 and no regrets!!
Gone, but not forgotten.
and thanks Leica 77 and impo for the kind words
