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

“Kiss the Rain”

Kiss the Rain

Kiss the Rain

Last night as I was sitting in my favorite chair, an Ekornes Stressless Recliner that we’ve owned for over 15 years, I decided to put my Bose headphones on and just chill out.  I don’t do this very often as life just seems to run at too fast a speed.  Not sure what to listen to I decided to tune into the iTunes Radio on my iPhone.  Let me just say that the iTunes Radio is not one of my favorite ways to listen to music but I have created a couple “radio stations” and picked one I made quite a while back; “Yiruma Radio”.  Yiruma is a South Korean pianist and composer and knew his music to be calming and its what I needed right then.

I remember now why I dislike the iTunes Radio and especially last evening is someone at Apple will throw in a song that is completely out of sync with the genre or style music I thought I chose.  So occasionally I’d have to wake from my mindlessness and select the “Do not ever play that song again” option.

But what this interruption did cause was a chance for me to see some of the song titles I did enjoy.  And the one that really caught my attention was “Kiss the Rain” by Yiruma.  As I listened to the song and saw the title my thoughts immediately remembered the photograph I posted above.  Don’t know why this image was retrieved from my memory.  But I made this one while sitting in the car waiting while my wife dropped into a shop here in town.  I was playing with the camera experimenting with capturing the rain as it hit the windshield and the diffused light it created.  And of course it rained last night and I was awoken by thunder and pouring rain.
