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

Gallery Walk April 26 | Brevard, NC

Drew Deane Gallery

Drew Deane Gallery | Leica M-E, Leica Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 III

Every fourth Friday starting in April and going through December our little town has a gallery walk.  Last evening was our first gallery walk for 2013.  The weather was wonderful and it made a great excuse to grab my Leica and head into town to grab a few photos.  The galleries weren’t crowded yet as the tourists haven’t arrived.  But there were many locals in attendance and it made for a wonderful evening.

I began my tour at the Red Wolf Gallery and enjoyed a glass of red wine while I viewed the art and listened to a local musician. What’s pretty cool is several of the galleries in the tour provide refreshments and entertainment making for a unique experience.

From the Red Wolf Gallery I decided to head over to the Bluewood Gallery on Jordan Street owned and operated by Hal Looney.  I was able to catch Hal speaking to a couple of his guests as he was describing some of the photographs in his gallery.

The last gallery I wanted to visit was the Drew Deane Gallery owned and operated by Drew Deane.  I really like what she creates and I try and bring her expired aviation charts.  Drew utilizes the charts in covering boxes and other art work making some very interesting pieces.  Plus, Drew always has entertainment and I really enjoy hanging out at her place.

From Drew’s place I headed back up to our main intersection at Main and Broad as I retraced my tracks.  The evening light was great and I’m happy with how The Fall Landing’s image turned out.  Maybe I should solicit them with a copy of this image for their website.

Now it was time for a beer and since the Brevard Brewing Company was across the street seemed the most logical place for me to go.  The Munich Dunkel caught my attention as I’m carrying a German camera and I happen to have a little German in my blood seemed the best first choice.  And I didn’t go wrong.  It was a finish to great first Brevard Gallery Walk of the year.
