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

We finally got a little snow here in the mountains yesterday. So I ventured out with my camera and attempted to capture some of the scenes I saw.

As I was framing a shot down our street these two poked their heads out of the trees and decided to pose for me.

    Duane, your giving away that your new to Leica.
    Experienced Leica Shooters know that Deer etc were installed in firmware 1.01 to help the shooter make The Leica Shot.


    1. Afternoon Streetshooter! The only thing they left out of the firmware was weather proofing! Had to hurry before the camera became water soaked!


      1. Streetshooter says:

        Come on Duane…ya got the ME…the M9 comes with a plastic bag….


        1. Well Street… I went to the Leica website and searched their accessories and I can’t afford the plastic bags with Leica logo on them!
