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

Nice, France | June 26

I’m in Nice, France for a couple days this week and of course I have to take advantage of the local to document my short stay. Its already warm here as July rapidly approaches. When I was here last in September the crowds had all but gone but they’re here now.

As I walked the streets I found many of the outdoor cafes were already filled or getting there. But if you get off the main streets and head down one of the many back streets, the loud sounds of the city almost become non existant and you seem you’re in another world.

My photos follow that I took yesterday, June 26.

    Really nice shots, I have to say its even better than your leica m-e!


    1. Thank you drenraux! The Ricoh GXR-M is a very nice camera and I really enjoyed shooting with it. But I think with as much time as I had shooting with the Ricoh I hope to be seeing those same results or better with the Leica M-E.
