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

Shoot Tokyo


I’m a fan of Dave Powell’s site Shoot Tokyo and decided to buy one of his T-Shirts.  My package arrived a couple days ago and I had my wife, who I think makes better photographs than me, snap my photo wearing the shirt.  She captured the image I was hoping for.

    Not much to say about this Duane. I mean you look good, nice tee shirt and the shooter, well…if she’s teaching…maybe you should sign up…I’m just sayin’….


    1. Told ya she knows what she’s doing!


      1. Streetshooter says:

        Yeah, actually it looks like she’s way above the M9 so you should get her the 240……


        1. I might have to take her to the doctor as she can’t stop laughing!

    Hey, cool shot! Have to see how my wife will perform with the M9 😉 I gave her the Sony recently, that was at least a good start…
    I didn’t know about the Shoot Tokyo site, thank’s for sharing!


    1. Thanks Robert! My wife is not at all comfortable shooting with my Leica. However, she knows how to frame a shot and better yet knows how to connect with her “audience”. Something I need a lot of work.

    Excellent portrait by your wife. So much better than the run of the mill I see with a Nikon or Canon DSLR who hang a shingle on their car’s rear window, Photography by Blah…Blah…Blah! Oh yea! thanks for the link…cool site!
