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

Traveling to Work | Leica M-E, Leica Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 III

Off to work on what has to be one of the nicest days this spring so far. Plus a great weekend to have been home as our little town of Brevard has shut down the main streets for the weekend Memorial Day celebration for parades and live music.

Oh well, someone has to go to work to pay the taxes to help run the government!

    Nice! I am struggling as to whether to the M-E or pay such extra money to buy the M240. What is your opinion? You are in a special position to advise on this, in my opinion, because you are the few who clearly love M-E and take great photos. Thanks!

    Here are some of my works:


    1. I guess it depends on when you can get your hands on the M240! The M-E was a stretch for me. Plus when I made the decision to upgrade to a Leica the waiting lists for the 240 were already filled. So I knew I would have to wait a long while before I could get the 240 if I wanted one. So I have no qualms in my decision to buy the M-E. I was also able to justify and had the funds to purchase an older version of the 50 Lux. I couldn’t be happier!
