Chris shoots da Leica M6 If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know of my quest and intention to meet as many fellow bloggers as I can. To date, I have met a number of you: Earl Moore – North Carolina Mike Brown – South Carolina John Wilson – Formerly, California, now Connecticut Tom – The Photo Father – New Jersey Chris Klug – Pennsylvania Ibarionex Perello – a chance encounter in NYC As you’ve seen throughout…

My good friend, Monte, has given me a good shot to the ribs a couple of times about saving money for an M9. 🙂 This all started when he, Earl, and I had dinner when he was in town. I made an off-hand comment that I ‘might’ get, or was thinking about getting a Leica M9. To be sure, it was just a thought.

Found memories This is an image of the former YWCA (Young Women’s Christian Association). When I was younger, we’d catch the bus downtown and walk to the YWCA. They had swimming for 2 hours for $1.00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It was fun stuff. Last year, I made a book for SoFoBoMo, In Retrospect, which can be found here.

Yes! We met this weekend, but more on that…

Left to right: Monte, Earl, Paul Well, add another blogger to the list of those that I’ve met. Monte Stevens! Earl Moore, AKA, The Earl of Salisbury, joined us for some fine dining at The Olive Garden. We had a fine time of it. Heck, Monte even got to meet the now famous, Hobbs! Of course Hobbs, being the mean spirited dog that he was immediately overcome by Monte’s head scratching technique! We sat, talked, ate, and consumed nonalcoholic beverages…
