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

Homeward Bound


Los Angeles International Airport

It seems to never fail that I will end my 7 day rotation somewhere on the other side of the planet from where I live. Usually the day before my last day I end up on the west coast. Of course that’s where I am now. I took a few snaps this morning.


I’m sleeping


My wingman is only on day 3 and he’s on his way to another airport to crew another jet but we did have a chance to grab some breakfast together. This was my new obligatory hotel door shot.

Fortunately, being in the Los Angeles and having to travel in the traffic on a weekend is usually not as severe as through the week. But then this morning there’s a light drizzle happening. You would think most people here had seen it rain before or at least they don’t reflect that in their driving skills.


My limo ride


You know I don’t think I’ve ever seen the LA Airport not busy. Maybe I should request to fly the red eye just to see if its just as busy in the middle of the night around here.




Ok, time to reverse the negative thoughts and put on the my positive face. I really have nothing to complain about. I keep reminding myself that its just a journey and one must sit back and enjoy life as it passes by.
