From today, M8 and Zeiss 25mm. Not often I try a theme, although this one is a little obvious
Thats One Serious Dude Mike! Nice Set!
Rayyan, the color,contrast,composition & lonely tree all play well together! Very nice!

A few more from yesterday, M8/Zeiss 25mm:
Some snaps this weekend in Los Gatos
Thinking about sushi:
A few from the SteveHuffPhoto workshop here in Seattle that I assisted in...
A lot of Leicas....
One the prowl with M shooters...(one may look familiar
I see neither the sea, nor the kayak ....but this guy is familiar...
And this guy, really showing dedication to the trade, "might" be a bit familiar to most of us....
Steve Huff and our Matt Driscoll at work...
Sometimes, abstraction means getting down on your knees....
Sometimes, even dogs need a sunhat and a ticket to ride
Running in the waterfountain...
J-, hammin' it up and being the willing subject for us all...
Music to the ears..
By light of the cell phone...
Our city was beautiful this day...
Ashwin: that last shot is rad
Im testing the UV filter settings and minimal distance focusing of the M8u here : pretty boring compared to the rest of the page
Joe, All Superb!
Ash, Looks Like A Lot Of Fun Was Had! Fine Set Especially The Images Of Matt & Dan!
Robert, Adorable Shot Of Your Little Darling!
. . . . . been awhile since I have posted a photograph. The usual suspects are posting beautiful shots along with some new contributions. Great stuff all!
Steve & Joe, best of plans went astray on my trip back east, spent time in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire & Maine. Loved the heat for a few days, the Atlantic is a hell of a lot warmer than the Pacific Northwest but still cools you off, but after the last few hot and miserable days (weather wise) it was great to get back to Seattle and wake up to 57 degrees with clouds and over cast on July 14th. Hopefully on my next trip back we can hook up and do a walk about town.
A few from this weekend . . . . .
Lily & Tim of Match Technical
M9 with Leica Summilux-M 35mm f1.4 ASPH
Steve, another amazing set with 90 cron, i love the first with the motion and your reflection taking it, nice to see you buddy !! keep rocking, cheers!
Mike, another excellent set from the M8 and 25mm, lovely stories, and i like your color mood, well done buddy !
Joe, lovely set from los gatos, good job !
Ashwin, Stunning set from the SteveHuffphoto workshop, i would really love to have the chance to participate in one next time , well done guys, looks like an awesome one, cheers!
Robert, Nice portrait for the little girl !
Dan, lovely colorful set, we really missed you man, good job !
More b&w shots;
One with the CV 35mm f1.2 at f2
One with the Zeiss 50mm f1.5 Sonnar - even the oof fg is pleasing with this lens!
Steve: Thanks, buddy!
Rayyan: Thanks! It took more pp then should have been necessary. I didn't expose well to capture his face.
gogopix: Not so hot out here; but, the "cool" still works for me.
Steve: Nicely done capture trough the window. Like the light/dark differences in the reflection and interior.
Steve: Well processed "Rock..."
Steve: "Dos Homens" - great B & W capture; smooth strong contrast
Steve: "Waiting..." is my favorite of this set. Strong lines and rhythm; doesn't fit the usual "left" to "right" read - the eye moves down the benches away from the subject and then has to come back to the man; he's looking right, so there should be more space in front of him to balance it; strong line of the benches counters that and brings the composition into balance; the clipped garbage can is the start of the two main vectors. Excellent unorthodoxy!
Mike: That third one's a little creepy - strong vignette at bottom makes it more so. Intriguing that he and the kid are in all three. That'd be an interesting photo essay? Sort of a "Where's Waldo" series. The second's my favorite - nice composition, but, in part it may be because he's sitting off to the side? Hard to separate the three. Terrific!
Rayyan: Love those colors and the horizontal divisions of the photo.
Steve: Three more excellent photos! It looks like you set up a blind in each and waited for the right subject? Whatever your technique, it worked well in all three. The double reflection and the movement blur in the first (as well as the guy way in the back photographing you!) make it my #1.
Mike: You've got this signature pp down! Same "Pret A Manger" - lots of interesting activity in that square. Nice timing with the last photo.
Mountainjoe: Good eye!!
Ashwin: A prize to anyone who can guess how many of those are film Leicas? Good work in that harsh light; however, you should have been more discerning about picking your subjects. I'm going to have to learn to close my mouth when I shoot. The one that i'm not sure about is the seventh "...abstraction..."? I'm looking for a more evident point/plane of focus at the grass in the upper foreground. Or, less focus at that point to make the composition more visually integrated. IMHO, of course. My favorite is the women/kid coming out of the fountain.
Robert: Yes - "adorable shot of your little darling!"
Dan: Aren't those the "ThumbsUP" people? Beautiful color, composition and IQ! The relationship of the flowers and the clown/balloons is perfect. It'd be interesting to see if that relationship could be made more evident by desaturating the photo? Great shooting with you, Ash, Ed and the others. We should do it more often.
Ashwin: Thanks, buddy! I had a great time. Your energy and passion is infectious. We'll do it again! (Now, I have to pp some of my photos from this weekend. You and Dan are fast!)

Ash, Mohammad,Dan & Matt Thanks So Very Much!
Dan, We'll Try To Hook Up Next Time Around.
Wake Up, The Girls Are Here!
M9, 90 Cron asph
Way behind again! Hard to keep up with all these great images.
Ashwin: Nice shots of your dietician friend. Love the b/w portrait in particular... beautiful eyes. The entire series from the Steve Huff workshop is great! But I have a question about the first shot... why just take pictures of your cameras? You could have added everyone else's too, couldn't you? Nice shots of our forum friends, Matt and Dan as well. Dedicated (and handsome) shooters for sure. And what the heck is Steve shooting with in that one shot?
Richardson: Welcome. Great post! The shot of the woman talking on the phone is incredible!
Bill CB: That shot of the "Gust Front" is amazing! Well seen and captured.
Mohammad: Really like the "Steet Shooter". Wonderful color as well.
Matt: "Two Blocks Apart" very interesting study in contrasts. I liked that redhead's hair as well. Good lookin shots of you from Ashwin! Nice shots from the workshop too. BTW, did I notice a new camera there? Jealous!!! Any noticeable differences?
Steve: What can I say?! Your street portraits are amazing. Loved "Unnoticed" and "Waiting for the World to Change" in particular. Great SP in "Faster than a Speeding Bullet". "Wake up" = great catch.
Mike: Your street shots are always such a delight. That series of the baby trolley pusher is great. Looks from that last shot like he was happy to have his picture taken... not! The other series was nice as well. You're really rockin' that M8, Zeiss 25 combo. Love the way that lens renders. I really enjoy your processing as well.
Rayyan: That shot of Scotland is beautiful. Looks cool and inviting. I need to go find my argyle sweater!
Joe: Nice series from Los Gatos. That "Two Blondes" shot is a crackup! Great catch!! "Encounter" is really nice as well.
Robert: Cool shot of the drink in the glass. Love that far off look in your daughter's eye as well.
Dan: Great shot of you in Ashwin's series. Nice shots from you here. Love the processing. Very kewl. Amazing color too.
Hope I haven't missed anyone. If so, it was purely inadvertent.
Appreciate It Greatly Lloyd!
