    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    so i dont check this thread for a good few days and i'm already like 3 pages behind :O so much beautiful work! this thread is always so inspiring.

    i've been in such a rut with photography within the past week.. just couldn't bring myself to take photos for the past few days. but i finally picked up my camera yesterday and went down to granville island (super tourist location in vancouver but still one of my favourite places) and snapped a few before my battery died not particularly happy with them.. but they're not horrible for being a few days rusty too :/

    in other news.. i've contracted a horrible case of GAS which doesn't appear to be going away xD so i recently acquired a fed4 with an industar 61 50/2.8, and as of today a rolleicord III so i experimented with the industar 61 on my RD-1 yesterday.

    Bad GAS lol is part of the M mount charm....glad you re-discovered the muse. It can be leached from us at times...thankfully, both Vancouver and Seattle have plenty to showcase to us.

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    So many incredible shots from everyone ... got me inspired to try my hand at B&W.

    Loved the first few months with the M8 that I took the plunge and sold her so I could picked up an M9 ... still a lot to learn ... guess I just need to keep shooting ... how rough life can be at times ;-)

    Thanks for the inspiration,

    Alejandro

    Howdy folks.
    Long time lurker around these parts, but barely shared any images. Some of you are familiar from the FM Leica thread. Thought I would share a few images from the last few months. Constructive feedback is most welcome. Hope to contribute more here.

    Oh wow... there is... so much to catch up on within one day. I'm horribly tired (the heat is killing me), so I'll keep it simple! A really nice page, really good work from all

    I really hope I get to visit Seattle when I go to Vancouver in August... I'd love to meet you all, if possible

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    I went out with my aunt and uncle today. We walked around Central, ate at an old style restaurant, and took a ferry... It was really tiring, especially in 30degree weather with the humidity pushing it to near 40. :P My family on my dad's side don't quite grasp what I mean when I say "I like taking photos" because they took me to a ton of tourist hot-spots and kept ushering me to take photos of things. "But everyone photographs these things, why add to it?" I say, "People take a photo of it for a reason, you're in Hong Kong, you should take photos of the things people remember about Hong Kong" my dad replies. I completely disagree, but snap away anyway, not wanting to make my aunt and uncle feel bad.



    We went to the IFC tower, a huge designer label mall full of tourists, (and the place where I learned that official Leica stores are bullshit,) and onto the IFC roof garden that overlooks the ferry harbour at Central. You can see the skyline of the mainland side of Hong Kong there, though it was raining so hard that you couldn't even see out to the edge of the harbour. When the rain stopped, we went back out to the roof garden and my dad tells me to take photos. I have no interest in shooting the skyline... I don't have an eye or interest for these things, and Andrew shoots them better :P Though I came away with a shot that I kind of liked.



    Central is full of foreign businessmen looking to do business with Hong Kong businessmen!

    Anyway, I think my favourite part of the day was eating at an old style restaurant in Central.

    At the Lin Heung restaurant in Central, an old-style restaurant. Floor is dirty, tables are dirty (we were seated at a table covered in spat-out bones and chewed meat, the mess was cleaned with one quick wipe of a wet towel), you need to give your chopsticks and dishes a second wash just in case. My dad loved it, re-lived his childhood here.

    When the food carts roll out, people flock to them...
    because if you wait for them to come to you (as you normally do in chinese restaurants), everyone else would've gotten the good food already. My dad refused to sit down until we had about 10 dishes infront of us :P He's like a child. Though, Hillary says I'm like a big kid, so I guess it runs in the family







    The Hong Kong photo culture is really different from the North American one. It's part of the culture (not the right word, though the word isn't coming to me right now) over here to value brand names and high price tags over personality and skill. I walked by a group of 4 men sitting at a table about a meter and a half in diameter. Each of them had a D3s/D4 with big, expensive glass mounted. 70-200/2.8 AF-S VRII, 85/1.4G, 24-70/2.8... they chat about their gear, the features, and how much it cost them... not once is a photo mentioned. People here think more expensive is better. Everyone shoots the same things, landscapes, mountains, cityscapes, skylines, things that people see in travel brochures, which is why my family thinks that's what I like when I say I like taking photos. Kinda sucks.

    Ajayc, Excellent images
    ... your PP is also top notch ... beautiful B&W and color

    Patrick ,looks like you are having a great time photographing HK , your getting some great photographs .

    Andrew , excellent images from HK

    Loyd ,really like your last set of B&W the grain and subtle tones are beautifully done
    as is the color image of the Blades of Grass.

    Hillary love your images .... I get like that sometimes and can't seem to make a photograph ... Recently been shooting film more and that helps change things up and get me out of any rut I may be in ... enjoy your new purchases
    It's hard to keep up with commenting on all the new images posted . Sometimes I have to take notes so I don't forget : ) but the images posted here are always a pleasure to look at and more often than not motivation to get out more and photograph .... very inspiring these photographers are

    With the Baseball field across the street from my house I have become the unofficial photographer for the Ohno Nishi baseball team. At first when photographing them , as I was told later, People were trying figure out which kid was mine .. looking for the "1/2 kid " which there isn't one. After about a month of photographing ,I thought it best to go down with some prints and my newborn son ; ) ... The photos of their kids were well received ....I think after seeing the images I was making of their kids made huge impact on some of the parents and the kids themselves ... Sometimes sharing our images with the strangers we are photographing gets left out of the process ... Theses are their memories and childhood and being able to make an image that captures these moments and sharing them with the actual people involved makes all that more powerful .
    Here is one from today

    Loving your stuff from HK, Patrick. With your father from there, you have a unique opportunity to see it in ways most "outsiders" never will. Thanks for sharing.

    Charles: Thank you, much appreciated. Nice shot too. Love the perspective. And I guess what I said about Patrick as an outsider in HK goes for you in Japan.

    WAY behind here. Nice to see the thread's activity picking up again.

    One quick one, a five-shot pano from my front porch. I think the mountain looks a bit over sharpened. Sorry.

    Thanks guys. I merged them with Photoshop's "photo merge". I've never tried any other means of merging images. I'd like to try, just never have.

    Patrick, I grew up in HK but that was a long time ago. I only went back briefly in 2007 and I hope to visit again soon.

    One question - I have heard that people in HK is rather camera shy and move away from your view if they see you taking pictures. Is that the case?

    Thanks. Nice work.

    Thanks Matt As they say, the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about....

    To give you some context, over the past 2 days I've spent approx 11 hours walking, standing, watching and waiting .... I'm looking forward to going back to work tomorrow for a rest

    A couple more from this weekend:

    Patrick, Seems like you're not enjoying HK, it's almost 80% rural here and a bit of homework would have led you to some real nice scenery, old temples that survived the cultural revolution in China, many opportunities for street shots, if that's your bag. I think you don't have an open mind about HK, for example "as you normally do in Chinese restaurants", there are many restaurants like that in HK and China, it seems pretty normal if you live here, are you comparing to "American" restaurants?

    Just saying, so you can enjoy it here more.

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    Not far from here lies a very big city. We are in the Rif mountains. Berber country, Morocco.

    A young man of 21 years, from the Berber Tribe, would leave his home and go on a journey.

    His journey would last 30 years. When he would return, his father, mother, most of his family and friends would have been dead. The Black Plague was sweeping these parts from Europe.

    The year is 1325. The young man would dictate his journey in a travel memoir, which would be more famously and erroneously known as the ' Rihla ' or the ' Journey'.

    This man would have travelled 120,000 kms..on foot, on mules, camels and horses. He would have travelled to the furthest corners of China.
    His journey would be unmatched till the advent of the steam engine.


    The young man came from Tangiers or Tanja, as I know it. He would be known in the west as Ibn Batutta. The traveller.

    p.s Those who have visited Dubai would have surely visited the Ibn Batutta Mall. The largest shopping arcade in the world. Named in honor of the traveller from Morocco.

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    Wow this thread is moving right along with lots of great images!

    Matt, love B&W of the man on the swing. The hyperprime sure has some funky bokeh! I'm liking it.

    Hillary, the industar looks great, lets see more!

    Alejandro, I like number 1!

    ajay, did you walk out of the store with the 50mm Noct? I am digging the smooth bokeh! I like the snake river too!

    Rayyan, nice image, may I ask were you were?

    Patrick, I live in Canada, but I frequently spend limited time in various cities in Asia. mostly Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Beijing. I will PM you the next time that I am travelling to Hong Kong. The restaurant looks awesome, totally my kind of place.

    Shiro, good on you for doing that for the kids and their parents. Sometimes as photographers we forget the positive impact that we can have!

    Lloyd, nice view from the front porch! Must be sweet to watch the sunrise there every day. Nice Pano,

    Gary, again the 90'cron looks even better slightly larger. Super image, with tons of depth and colour. Nice to see it not over done as well.

    I'm guessing that the snake was dead?

    Thank you to everyone for the kind comments.

    WHY DOES THIS THREAD PROGRESS SO FAST!? D:

    Charles, I've been thinking about getting a few of my photos printed, carrying them around, and handing them out to the people I've met if I ever run into them again :P Great angle and framing in that shot!

    Lloyd, you just keep pushing out one great landscape after another!

    Mike, "The Entertainer" really put a smile on my face :P Great catch! And I like the photo of the man getting his bike!

    Rayyan, a great story to go with the photo

    Andrew! I'm in Canada too, I'm just in hong kong for the next little while!

    Well deserved .... congratulations !!!!
    I read about them turning on Photographers .. it never would of occurred to me not to take photographs as that is why I would be at such an event ... How will this change your approach if at all other than just being careful ? As I read it they have an actual mandate to single out photographers and punish them . It will Be interesting to see the images coming out of the Chicago protest .....

    Hi ShiroKuro, Thanks

    First of all, there are some indications that some of these violent acts (may be not the ones directed toward photographers, but not sure...) are not done by the "real" protesters. I hope the truth will come out.

    As for what I would personally do, I'd be careful :-) Also, while I am pretty small (5'4" Chinese dude), I do know how to take care of myself, if you know what I mean. The smaller Leica (and the XPan) probably helps a little as they don't look as "pro" as a big Nikon or Canon///

    Mike: I believe we did conclude that you were a 'stalker', worked for it , and had a good 'eye' for humor! I believe, I also, said that everything in England was funnier then here! Two more excellent shots.

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    On this day of the eclipse, we went to a small sculpture garden that didn't have much sculptures :-/ Maybe they're leaving room for more in the future. Anyway, had some fun:









    Oh, did I mention there was a solar eclipse? I didn't get a good shot of the sun, but caught some interesting shadows. Reminds me of what someone said about shooting sunsets -- turn around!

    Ashwin, thank you. The pic is from ChefChaouen, not far from Tangiers.
    I honestly believe you would have a ball in Morocco. Let me know when you are going!!
