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

Through the Curtains

Through the Curtains

I had a surprising pleasant day here in Minneapolis. I thought for sure my day would be crazy busy. I awoke to see some light beginning to stray between my blinds. I really wasn’t ready to pull the covers back to look to see how the day was going to be but something in the back of my mind said to. So I took a quick peek and whoa the sun had already crested the horizon. Before retiring last night to bed I had no idea which direction my hotel window was facing. I initially panicked looking for my camera. After a quick check I realized I’d left the sim card in my computer after downloading my photos from the night before. Hopefully by the time I get the camera reset and the sim card inserted I wouldn’t miss the light.

I used the soft blinds to play with the light. I made some photos shot at infinity concentrating on the sun and some others focused on the opaque blinds. I even had time to change lenses to get another series of shots to experiment with the light.

Then I turned around and this wonderful light streaming into the room presents me with this scene of the ruffled bed covers.

But there’s something missing….Something very important missing….and its that special lady in my life that I’m missing that should be here with me enjoying this too.

    I empathize. I have a double-long distance love. Holidays are over. sigh.

    1. Well I don’t have it so bad. It’s just that I’m gone for normally 7 days and can be any where in the world. I’m on my way home today and the sweetheart and I are going to spend the night in Asheville. Great places to eat and cool pubs!
