He was always in motion. Mimi and I had always been big dog people, but we rescued this little toy poodle, when his previous owners decided they simply didn't want two dogs (they had a teacup poodle as well... a yappie little rat) He's been with us 14 years now, but he stole our hearts right from the beginning. He's still very loving, and even playful (in short bursts), and still has reasonable health, but we know he won't last long. We'll miss him a lot, but I'm actually most worried about his little friend there in the background. Spike (a Yorkie) is absolutely devoted to Pepper, rarely leaving his side. How to help him deal with the loss? That will be the biggest issue.

    M8, 90 Cron pre-ASPH @ f2:


    Go toward the light, old friend. It's ok. We'll be ok... and thank you.

    I really love how all your photos have significant meaning in your life. Thanks for sharing them with us. That's really the main purpose of all my photographic addictions too - hopefully my family and friends will enjoy them in years to come. I don't have to be renowned by the public, in fact I'm sure I won't, but I just hope my family will cherish the memories from my photos in the future.

    Here are a few Leica-related snaps of my Stinkerball (just a nickname, we didn't really name him that!)

I can refer my daughter to your post. That way she'll know that i do something besides work.
    Steve/Lloyd: Gentlemen, thank you and thank you for your assistance.
    Rayyan: Thank you and thank you for your inspiring work!

    All: Thanks for your posts. This is a great forum to learn from; and, most civilized too. BTW, I'm not quitting my day job.

    Cheers, Matt

    Matt, had to stop by the M forum to learn the news, you sly devil. Congratulations! The recognition is well deserved, for a great photographer, a kind man and a good friend. We're all proud of you

    While i'm around these parts... among the always superb work displayed here from all of you guys, i'll second this:

    Take care.
    Lloyd, it looks like many of us has a history with rescued dogs, so we more or less know the feeling. While it's indeed hard to put it into words, thanks for sharing. All the best to Pepper, Spike, and all the family.

    Re: The Latest & Greatest Fun w/Digital M Images

    Jono: +1 for everybody's comments on the 35mm. To quote David: "From the ridiculous to the sublime..."

    David: You're warming up to the "Life after Vegas" theme. That last B & W is very striking with the dark to light, textures and focus. I guessing it's be good in color, also.

    Lloyd: Well, Pepper and Spike got to me a bit. Reminds me of pets that we've had, and the one we have now that's also getting old and will be sorely missed. I need to remember this: "Go toward the light, old friend. It's ok. We'll be ok... and thank you."
    Thank you for that and allowing us in.

    Per: Nice photo of Snuffan.

    XK50: Beautiful tram photos. That first one's very cool.

    Steve: Well said and an excellent photo of Wendy!

    Rayyan: Well framed. Seems balanced even without the bow of the ship. The two superstructures probably do it. Very graphic and "cold".

    [B]Nick:[B] Well captured. That scene was probably repeated in a lot of US bars today!

    Bart: Gotta love those trams! Is the center photo from a museum? We actually have two in Seattle: one old, along the waterfront; and one new, running through Paul Allen (of Microsoft fame) biotech land. I'll take some photos for comparison. Not as nice as #9.

    Osman: Thank you!

    JKlotz: Nice portrait. Super bokeh.

    Rayyan: Nice ? I don't see wires. It's beautiful; whatever it is! The colors of the background and the red brick work very well with the glass. Great PP. Does it identify the location of a Perfumarie?

    Rayyan: Ayesha's obviously not locked up (and from what we know of her through your photos never was, or will be)! Beautiful framing. The backdrop of the mountains set off her posture and red jacket.

    [B]Steve:[B] Great B & W. Composition and PP are excellent.

    Maggie: Glad the bird's OK. The hose, the rocks and the sparrow make a very nice composition. The hose seems to protect the bird.

    Rayyan: Nice fountain. Freezing the water drops makes a great image. Well done.

    Jerry: Thank you. Ashwin touched up that portrait quite a bit in Photoshop!
    Excellent photos of "Stinkerball"!

    Corlan: Thank you very much. About 10 years ago, my firm received an award from the Vinyl Siding Institute (or something like that). I believe it was because we were designing hundreds of those ubiquitous 3-story suburban walk up apartments with lots, and lots of vinyl siding. The show's probably my reward for an out of control photo equipment lust that's periodically satisfied at Glazer's Camera, where this show was. Seriously...much appreciated.

    Steve: This last 9 & Noct photo's seriously cool! The magician dazzles us again.

    Cheers, Matt

    Matt: you're way too modest.
    Btw, now i'm thinking i should have asked for a signed copy of the bear shots.


    Steve: splendid photo.
    My kind of subject, would have loved to take it myself (but the result would not be on par).

    Ashwin, those are all gorgeous! Wow.

    What do you use to process the .DNG files?

    (Man, I want an M9 even worse now.)

    Here's a couple of recent shots from the M8, with CV 35/2.5 Color Skopar:

    Thanks, Maggie. Lovely shots yourself!

    The M9 is a worthy tool and should find its way into your hands, but the M8 is stellar as well!

    I processed everything in the images above solely in Lightroom 3. Typically, I have used Nik software, but I didn't use it for any of the shots posted in these prior 3 posts....LR3 is an AMAZING tool!!!

    Lightroom, eh? Wow. I thought Capture One was the best thing out there, but I cannot argue with your results. They're fantastic!

    Tho' I can't help but wonder if C1 is best for the M8 and LR for the M9? Thoughts?

    I have to second Maggie's sentiments, Ash. Those are some great shots. And I'll second what you've said about LR3, I've certainly been impressed so far.

    BTW, that shot of Steve in the alley reminds me of the old Victor Mature Samson and Delilah movie. Watch out, the walls may come tumbling down any time!

    Thanks so much, Lloyd. LR3 is fantastic, I agree!

    Steve just might be able to push those walls apart and down

    Maggie, I do agree that L3 does handle M9 files very well. Lloyd may be able to speak better on how it handles M8 files, as I no longer have the M8, but I must say that there's a quantum leap, particularly in the handling of noise, that LR3 has made. Plus the grain filters, watermarking, and vast improvements in vignetting tools, let alone the many new pre-sets, make this a worthy worthy addition!

    Best,

    Yes, indeed. Those attributes, plus the amazing price. It's a steal! Here's a sample shot using that lens on the M8. (I may have posted this previously, so I apologize if it's redundant.)

    Thank you Jerry. Much appreciated. I love photography for the art, but honestly, I think the most important images any of us will every take are of our families and those close to us.

    Very nice series of "Stinkerball". I love this one especially.

    Re: The Latest & Greatest Fun w/Digital M Images

    Ok, one more time. This is a followup to the shots of my parents I posted at the start of this thread. HERE. Sadly, the photos with the old Leica IIIc didn't come out. (Actually, operator error, as I didn't property load the film, and it didn't advance, resulting in a totally blank roll!). My parents came back to town, so we decided to do it again. This time the film was carefully loaded!!

    Here's a shot from today with the M8, 35 Cron combo (BTW, my mother was much happier with her clothing choice this time). This is straight out of the camera, and despite the strong backlight, we have good detail.



    Here is why, as captured by my wife's cellphone camera. Two of my brothers middle-left, and my brother-in-law, middle-right, all wearing white shirts, are acting as my reflectors! (Maybe it's the bald heads). Our wives all laughed, but it worked! Hey, you use what's available, eh?



    The film results later, once I get it developed.

    Thanks very much, Rayyan...

    And that portrait with the M8 and skopar, Lloyd, is OUTSTANDING.Very gentle toning!

    Here are a few from today's Solistice Festival in Seattle:










    All taken with the M9 and 50 lux asph....it was getting lonely with all of my attention to the Noct 0.95, but I am reminded what an amazing lens it is...

    Lloyd: Outstanding Photo. The beautiful lighting enhances an even more beautiful lady. The bw treatment brings a nostalgia back into a modern rendering.

This time the film was carefully loaded!!

    Here's a shot from today with the M8, 35 Cron combo (BTW, my mother was much happier with her clothing choice this time). This is straight out of the camera, and despite the strong backlight, we have good detail.



    Here is why, as captured by my wife's cellphone camera. Two of my brothers middle-left, and my brother-in-law, middle-right, all wearing white shirts, are acting as my reflectors! (Maybe it's the bald heads). Our wives all laughed, but it worked! Hey, you use what's available, eh?



    The film results later, once I get it developed.

    Lloyd: I wish for a long and happy life for them and theirs. This photo will
    be a treasure for your generations to come as it surely will be for you and your brothers.

    Regards.

    And that portrait with the M8 and skopar, Lloyd, is OUTSTANDING.Very gentle toning!

    Here are a few from today's Solistice Festival in Seattle:



    All taken with the M9 and 50 lux asph....it was getting lonely with all of my attention to the Noct 0.95, but I am reminded what an amazing lens it is...
    Thanks Ashwin.

    Great series of images. Yes, you can limp by with that poor ol' 50 Lux ASPH.

    Thank you Osman. Much appreciated. I'm glad my reflectors were all there (a family wedding) and all wearing white!

    We've never figured out the hair issue. Four brothers, two bald as can be, one thin, and then me. Not even thinning. And I'm the oldest.

    Good Gracious, Your Wife Is Beautiful!
    Thanks for that one, Steve. Mimi read it, and blushed big time! (I loved that!) I have to say, I won't argue your point. I'm a very fortunate man, on many levels!
