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

Day 33 | 2012

We had a beautiful day here in the mountains and was able to get a few things done outside that I’ve been putting off, like vacuuming the car. Butch was a willing model today for my first shots with my Ricoh GXR A12 Mount and a LEICA SUMMICRON-C 40mm f/2 lens. I’m new to manual focus lenses and took a little bit of time practicing today with the kit.

    Lovely image. Excellent balance of space, line, and harmony of colour. A wonderful sense of time, place and mood have been established in this composition.


  2. Thank you elmediat. I just purchased the Leica lens and I really like the quality of image it makes!
