SOME OF MY FAVORITE QUOTES

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

King’s College – Cambridge UK

King's College

King’s College

I flew into the Cambridge Airport late this afternoon and only had a couple hours of light. It’s been several years since I’d been here and at that time I was not taking photographs. Plus the weather was very fowl.

We’re staying at the Double Tree Hotel right on the river and as I was leaving the hotel to take some photos I asked the receptionist if there was one photo I should take what should it be?

She thought for a moment and while in thought I asked her what photograph would remind you of your city? She then immediately said the view of the rear King’s College from across the river.

Perfect. As I looked at the map and the sun was in a perfect position as it was only an hour or so before sunset and the rear of King’s College faces directly west.

I had to crop a little bit to get the look I wanted I hope I’ve done this great piece of architecture justice!
