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

The Morning After

The Morning After

I may get in trouble posting this photograph but it helps remind me how special the lady in this picture is to me. I travel away from home a lot. I’m traveling now, sleeping in another bed, in a different city, with unfamiliar food. But I know I don’t have to worry about the “home front” while I’m away as she is there.

For the past year or so we’ve been treating ourselves to a night out, once in awhile, on the day I return home from work. My lovely picks me up at the airport and we spend the evening in and around Asheville. A couple weeks ago, my special lady surprised me with a stay at the Grove Park Inn. I didn’t have to do any of the planning, reservations, nothing. Unfortunately, even though the sky was clear it was bit chilly yet in late February so we stayed inside during the afternoon. She scored us a great room over the main lobby making it easy to enjoy the hotel for the evening.

You can’t imagine how wonderful a treat this is after being gone for 7-8 days to spend an evening alone together before having to face my world at home.
