Back to the street today, and a MUCH lower keeper rate
M8/35 'cron....I hate shopping:
Mike: street is something I am heading at soon.
Great moment I hope he didn't put a spell on you
Here is finally one b&w out-of-cam only resized to fit in here...
I really like the M9-jpgs.
Here's some images from yesterdays "Occupy Vancouver" rally.
M9 + 90mm Elmarit-M
This guy wasn't so popular M9 + Zeiss Biogon 2/35
M9 + Zeiss C-Sonnar 1.5/50
Wozz, powerful set! Well done.
As few re-visits into the deep vault, back to 2009 and Egypt, when the M9 was brand new...
OUt the window, eyes upon the Great Pyramid....
Colossus of Memnon
Pile o' Rocks
Take a break, take a moment, to take it all in....
Overseeing the aeons....

Beautiful Egypt shots Ashwin! Definitely somewhere I need to take my M9 one of these days...
Here's some more from Saturday:
The centre of Occupy Vancouver, the Vancouver Art Gallery (amusingly referred to as the VAG around town). M9+90mm Elmarit-M
My buddy Chris, M9+Zeiss Biogon 2/35

THanks, Wozza! Egypt is a "must visit". I was there a year before the revolution hit, so it was interesting to see the changes happening on the TV in the same places where I had aimlessly strolled....
I very much like the IQ and tones of the last Zeiss 35 biogon capture....fantastic real world portrait.....Zeiss glass, IMO, is quite underrated, and deserves a second and third look, and your images prove it!
A couple with the 50 lux asph.
Haha indeed, thanks Mike
Here's one with the Nikkor-PC 105/2.5

I think the "" implied it was tongue in cheek Steve Thanks!
Helge: Beautiful autumn morning shots, and the b/w shot is really nice.
Mike: That shopper's giving you quite the look. Nice catch.
Warren: Nice work at the rally. And I really love the way that Zeiss 35 renders.
Ashwin: Glad you dipped into the archives... great stuff! Love the b/w processing.
Daniel: You do have a way with beautiful topography!!
Ash, great Egypt pics, I especially like:
Overseeing the Eons and Horus ( eagle god)
Daniel, this is a wonderful and highly appropriate use of the Lux 50; a perfect lens that requires a perfect subject to shine (and a good photographer). Your images combine all three ingredients.
Here's a shot I took of one of my co-workers
M9 + 75mm Summicron ASPH
Wozza, a beautiful shot, the 75mm Cron is a wonderful lens for portraits! Love the focal point in the eye and the soft bokeh in the shot.
. . . . . I imagine you took that at f2, would like to see the same shot taken at 2.8 or 4 to see if the both eyes could have been captured without blur to see if it improved the image.
Beautiful series Daniel!
. . . . . I am a sucker for anything that contains a body of water and a house in the photograph!
Incredible photographs as usual . . . . .
construction candid in my yard. even the sheds got roofs after the storm of April 26, 2011.
Daniel: Do you ever take a bad picture???
Here's a couple of long exposures from last week.
M9+Zeiss Biogon 2/35
Gorgeous shots Warren. Wow!!
went to the beach with my buddy hoping for a great sunset, but on the way there, the marine layer kicked in and the visibility was down to a few hundred feet all of a sudden. We kept on going anyways, thought this turned out pretty interesting! hope you guys like it!

Very nice peter!
Peter, nice scale/mood shot!
Lloyd, Baudolino, Dan and Matt; thanks guys.
I take many bad photos Matt, I think you are being too kind My M9 has done about 20k actuations, if that is any indicator, but I certainly don't 'spray & pray'. In fact I've never had it (deliberately) on C mode.
Helge, great mood and tone to each of those images. I also like your black & white! I'm a huge fan of the out-of-camera JPEGS as well, if only they were a little sharper like the RAW's :\
Mike, well captured scene and entirely appropriate caption
Great PJ work Woz, excellently conveying the peaceful protest. Oh and I like your coworker portrait, I my coworkers (when I wasn't out on my own all day) suffered my photographic wrath on many occasions
Ashwin, jealous of your Egypt pics, I must say, however, that Karl Pilkington's "An Idiot Abroad" put me off visiting a bit.
Lovely simplicity in your shot Peter, it did turn out really interesting, thanks for sharing.
Here's a B&W conversion, also shot with the 50 Lux asph.
I think the girl did great considering it was her first time modelling on location.
Peter, in my eyes this photograph is outstanding!
I love the tone, composition, scenery, flat wet sand with the reflection of the sole individual on the beach, water, fog, and mood!
I must confess I love the ocean and long walks on a beach and this photograph just grabs a soft spot in my heart!
Out an about last night and attended a reception for Students & Staff at the University of Washington. A committee was formed last spring with the goal to collect pieces of art to hang on the walls at the renovated Hall Health Primary Care Clinic. They selected 50 pieces of work and the opening was last evening.
. . . . . nothing much in the way of shots but I have not used the M9 much lately and wanted to contribute something to the thread.

M9 with Zeiss C Sonnar T* 50mm f1.5 ZM
A pal of mine ( who dislikes Leicas :P) asked me to take some Fall family photos for him, so of course I showed up with My M8 muahahaha
After I sent him some of the *proofs* he was " WOW!!"
this is his Wife , she wore a super bright white sweater , so converting this shot to B&W worked out a lot better IMO
here are the happy couple ( happy cos the 2 little kids were playing in a pile of leaves :P)
