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

I finished my work day in Southern California and took this photograph while finishing my post flight before the warm sunset light went away.  I guess I enjoy my profession as everyday can be very different than the last and today was no different as I finished the day on the west coast after leaving the New York area earlier.

Again, I still have my 35mm Leica Summilux attached to the camera and am in that “love” affair mode with its rendering as, like Don “Streetshooter” reminded me yesterday, these older lenses bring some emotion along with them where today’s modern lenses can to be too “clinical” in how they draw.
