The main reason why I photograph with a Leica camera:

“I want simplification, not amplification or complication…I just want light controls … because photography is about light.” – Thorsten Overgaard

“A camera that gives me the joy of ownership and the joy of shooting is much more important than one with the highest number of megapixels or highest ISO performance.” – Yukio Uchida

“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.” ― Ansel Adams

“You just have to live and life will give you pictures.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson

Atagahi Lake at Connestee Falls

I’ve been very busy at home this past week and haven’t had a chance to process my recently taken photos.  However, I’m back on the road traveling this week.  Today was a travel day through the Charlotte Airport then on to Chicago O’Hare.  My travel plans have me heading over to Europe at the beginning of the week and hope to get some time to shoot some photography while there.

In the mean time, this is one I took this week where I live in Western North Carolina.  The fall leaves are just about completely off the trees and the temps the last couple nights have been down in the mid 20s fahrenheit.  However, the past few days have been very sunny.

I try to always have my Ricoh GXR with me, just in case a photo opportunity arises.  This photo was taken while on my way into town, Brevard, NC.

    Beautiful picture! This is one reason why I love North Carolina! Thanks for sharing!


    1. Thanks skittles, I don’t think most realize how big North Carolina is. People will ask me how close I am to the “Outer Banks” and when I tell them its over 8 hours from the mountains here they are very surprised.
