In my post, Exploring something new, Chris Klug asked: Those trees really give the image some nice framing. I wonder: have you come to any conclusions yet about people and their love for Leica cameras? Any insights? The bold emphasis is mine. Chris seems to have knack for asking those interesting questions that cannot be answered with a simple yes or no, but hey, it keeps me in business. I’ve been pondering this since he asked, thinking about my own…

Leica M6 – Ilford HP5 – Rodinal 1:50 Let’s keep this short and sweet. Sometimes a scene grabs you and you have to capture it. I saw this as I was leaving work. It had been raining all day and was rather dreary when I left, sometime around 5:00 PM. Usually the parking spaces would be full and, as it was around 5:00 PM … let’s just say that good parking spaces were easy to come by. As I walked…

Leica M6 – Ilford HP5 – Rodinal 1:50 Within a few days of arriving in Charleston, I remember thinking: OMG! What is that smell? There must be a paper mill nearby. Sure enough, there was, right in the same neighborhood where I worked. Great! People who had worked in the area for some time assured me that I’d get used to.

As I scanned the last few images from the last roll that I developed, I looked at my photo count and see…

Thinking back, I believe this to have always been the case, but I had to get over, or perhaps manage is the better word, a number of insecurities, of which I have many. I refer, often, to Craig Tanner’s The Next Step creativity workshop. I think…

Welcome to Heavenly Harlem Though it wasn’t on the plan, Tom and I went to Harlem, NY. We had made our way into the city and were waiting for the ‘A’ train, which would take us to 86th street and Central Park. The train arrived, we boarded, sat down, and were waiting for it resume. Suddenly, Tom jumps up and says: Follow me! We exit the train opposite of where we got on and went into another train. This train…
