Too Much Sodium...
M9, 50 Lux asph
Funny From This Side Too!
M9 50 Lux asph
Thanks all I listened to the boss and bought an old Metz mecablitz 40 mz2
Along the crowded, dark, alleyways, from a land far away...
Mike: Glad you shared it and didn't delete. You could always photshop the walking stick to make it shorter? Nahh...just add it to your bloopers file.
Ceh: Very simple and elegantly composed stair.
John: Those two guys staring back at you on the Blueline are priceless! Perfect reflection.
Steve: I like the color, cropped, version. Picks up more detail on her and still has the strong lines.
Steve: "Rest Period" and "Hard to Miss"...classic, excellent, Steven!
Lloyd: Great forms and focus in your alien flower shot!
Mohammad: I think the "bench" is one of your best posts! The gritty pp and the composition with the lines, light and dark areas, texture, and perspective all work well together.
Cenak: +1 for what Steve said! What does the signage say?
Cenak: Nice "grab" shot! Great background and color.
Robert: "Blinds" and "Baby" are great! Love the simplicity of the first and the movement in the second.
Steve: Does it work based on proximity, or, did she have to plug in? How many bars?
Steve: Nicely timed. The photo on the Perkins truck is impressively real in this view.
Joe: You always show up with some photos that i wish i'd taken...the first two...and, wish i'd eaten, the last one.
Robert: Cute girls and photos. The third one's very cool.
Ashwin: #3 and #5. Wow!
Cenak: I'm with Ashwin on the color vs. B & W..leaning towards the color, though.
Joe: You got so desperate to take a photo that you went down into the basement? Both are quite nice.
Ashwin: Nice color and smile in the first and framing in the third. Has OSHA been out to that construction site? Safety and QC seem a little suspect.
Steve: Thank you, my friend!
Steve: After shift lunch at the Salty Dog? Good eye!
Steve: Beautifully framed "...this side too"
Woody: Tough choice. couldn't be more different, but, both outstanding.
Cenak: If only the dog would run, to the left, around the two women and towards the little girl!
Ashwin: That's very atmospheric! Cinematic! Indiana Jones (if you don't look at the signs too closely)!
Ashwin: Cool series of "boatsmen" #1's my fav. Look at those eyes!
Trying out a new lens in the front yard. Cropped and un-cropped.

Love the photographs Mark! Beautiful Detail, Color and Circular Bokeh!
The CV 40/1.4 delivers a bang for the buck . . . . .
Congrats on the new lens.
A couple in B & W.

so we had 31 days of rain, 1 warm sunset then a hot day (26C!) , then its rained again today and its 5C , man I love living here! blech
here are a few shots I took during the warm sunset
can you guess the lens on my M8?
BTW, I didn't realize you still had the M8.2. Glad to see you're putting it to good use.
One from the traffic circle. Planting's a bit out of control.

thanks guys, its an Elmarit 135/2.8 , those shots were from about 3-4 metres away!
now its raining again, I know 2 things
1: I hate rain
2: Id never move to Seattle or Vancouver!
Leica glow? or newsprint?
my 4 yr old nephew drawing, shot from another room using the Elmarit 135 , 1/45th of a sec handheld on my M8
Robert, a beautiful photograph of your son!
It looks like you are enjoying the 135/2.8 and I look forward to see more shots from this lens in the future. Is this the lens with the goggles?
. . . . . I sold my M8.2 to help finance the M9, I wish I could have kept it, I loved it, it had a nice feel in my hands . . . . . after picking up a couple of more lens to go with the M9 it will be awhile before I have a second body . . . . .
Robert, if you spent a winter or two in Seattle or Vancouver you would see and feel the difference. We keep the snow in the mountains where it belongs and have mild weather down in the city.
In Seattle only a few days a year does the temperature get below freezing and the rain is always good for the fish and the flowers!
Never say Never!
Picked up a used 35 Lux a couple of weeks ago and have little time to get out and shoot so a few random shots.
Tulips & Daffodils in Front of the Black Sun
Cactus at Volunteer Park Conservatory
I Feel Respected
M9 with 35 LUX
Dan, it is indeed the goggle-lens , very goofy looking, but its optically awesome when I can get it focused!
( its my nephew too, I only have 2 girls, when they hit their teens Im moving out!)
A few more 40mm f/2 shots in the front yard. This time with the M9.
1. M9; CV 40mm f/1.4 SC; ISO 160

BTW ~ You will love your daughters teenage years, it is a magical time . . . . . and it was fun having conversations with the boy friends that came by, I was old school and they did come in to meet me . . . . .
hahahah! cool , nice skate shots too btw
Matt Ilike #3 that bokeh is intoxicating!
Thanks for the earlier comments: Lloyd, Steve, Matt
Ash, more great shots from your vault! Excellent B&W street scene and also the 2nd & 3rd shot from the last boatmen set. Really nice!
Steve, very nice "street" from the hood!
Woody, the 35CronIV shot is beautiful! Nicely done.
Matt, congrats on the new lens. Some fudgy bokeh Love the colors of the flowers thought.
Robert, nice composition and color of the flower blades
Dan, congrats on the 35Lux! Very nice set with the flowers and B&W museum scene!
The rain finally stopped (at least for a few hours in NYC on Sat)
Nice work with the 35 Lux, Dan. Is that the ASPH or the Pre? Love the skating shots. And the HDR version is very kewl.
