Tag: Leica M9

I got a call from Adorama and the deal is done. They made me an offer that I could have refused, but didn’t. The had some stuff that I wanted, so I got it. So, here’s what’s on the way: D700 28-70 mm Nikkor f/2.8 VR 105 mm f/2.8 Nikon Micro (Macro) lens. Two of the items, the D700 and 28-70 mm are used, but in Like New, or Demo shape. For sure, Adorama beat me on the spread; they…

Things come. Things go. Sometimes things seem like a good idea and turn out to be not such a good idea, but we learn. I bought the Leica M9, not quite a year ago. During that time, I’ve taken 4,567 photos with it. Most of those that Pedro’s wedding and in Australia. Other than that, I’ve not used it all that much. This year, I’ve taken 133 photos with it. Not many. So, why don’t I use it that much…

What a beautiful box! Now that I have recovered sufficiently from my jet lag, I’ll tell this frightful tale. I had just arrived from Sydney into San Francisco. I cleared customs and immigration, rechecked my bag to Charlotte, and went to get 28 to relax for an hour or so before my flight to Charlotte.

Throughout the day, I took very few shots. As a matter of fact, for our 6 or 7 hours there, I took only 57 pictures, very few of animals, other than the human variety. By far, this shot was my favorite…

Victory is mine! I knew, from the time that Pedro asked me to photograph the wedding that I wanted to do it in a particular style. At the time that he asked, I didn’t own an M9. However, when I purchased it, I knew that it would be my tool of choice, or believed that it would be. This post is about the practical application in using that camera and how I think that it did. There were a number…

Above the madding crowd – Pamela’s P&G Diner – Pittsburgh, PA This is an excerpt from a post that I wrote on January 26, 2010. I had just returned from my visit with Tom … my first trip to New York City. When I was in NYC with Tom, The Photo Father, we were walking up 5th Avenue. I spotted a man with a Leica around his neck. Leica’s, it seems, to someone who knows about Leica’s are very noticeable…
