From the Saatchi Gallery, London and my blog. M9 + 35mm pre asph vIV
Thank you Matt and Charles!
Great shots from Poland Mike. In the last few years I've only been to Krakow and the mountains in the South, but there are great photo opportunities throughout the country. Numbers 2 and 4 in the first batch and 2 and 3 in the second in particular are fantastic!
I must also issue a more general thanks to the posters in this forum. I've had my eye on an M9 for some time and the posts in this forum helped finally push me over the edge. After a few weeks, I must say it's great fun!

Mike, I like your sense of humor and compositions very much. I think desaturating the shots helps to stress the subject matter.
Mike, that image of the cartoon character on the bench is outstanding, as are all of your other amazing captures!
Wow, I haven't visited here in a couple of weeks. Long story short, working like a dog and also had to attend to family matters (nothing serious).
There are some wonderful photos here. Will have to work backwards and look at them more closely.
I haven't taken any new photos. I did find a few images from March that were worth processing. All with the M9 and 18mm SE.
Wonderful shots with diverse subjects as usual Woody!
M9 + Noctilux .95
Back from Turkey, more coming soon.
This one for Osman
Wow! Glorious shot, Mohammed! St.Sophia in its full splendor as seen from the side gate of the Blue Mosque.
I hope you had a nice and enjoyable stay in our chaotic village)
Thank you for posting,
Back to the M world, here are a few shots :
Paris from The Jules Vernes Restaurant. (Tour Eiffel)
Myfavorite and nearest seaside spot...
That's it for the moment,
Taken with the M9, Cron 50 the first and cron 28 the 3 others.
By the way guys, I was thinking, cant we organize a selection of photos on this thread.
And then publish a Blurb book, as they made on LUF . A kind of Getdpi's Leica M best of.
Who si interested in this ? And how can we make it...
Thank you Otumay, Lloyd, Ashwin, Steve, Matt and George (it really is a small world, and welcome to the forum) - thank you all for your very generous comments.
Ashwin - the cartoon character was a gift wasn't it lol ? Here's one from the same session which I actually prefer, being slightly more subtle, although the exposure was trickier....
Ok, just a couple more before I move onto something else
This thread seems to be moving pretty fast past few days. Very nice pics from the past week from everyone: boymerang, Woody, Eleanor, Lloyd, Mike Woods, kuau, Braeside, sig284, MPK2010, Charles, Matt, DavidE & Stef.. hope I didn't miss anyone! Nice to see varied styles & subjects posted and most important, everyone here enjoying their digital M8 or M9!
.. and thanks Charles, Matt & Steve (shtarka1) for your earlier comments
Here's one from last week, taken at IAH Houston on the way back to Boston. M8 35CronIV.
Woody, to me this is a powerful shot that elicits lots of questions....I have always been fascinated with Manhattan and on my visits there I have been most interested is seeing...not the tourist stuff---museums and plays, broadway, etc...I have always been interested in the "neighborhoods"...I am fascinated by what it must be like to live among so much concrete day to day. Do people use their cars (we LOVE our cars in Houston!), do you have supermarkets? It is always noisy when out and about??. This image makes me think of all this! Buildings, and windows and traffic everywhere. Really well done! eleanor
