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

It’s been a long while since I’ve posted here. For that matter, the camera hasn’t seen much daylight either as I haven’t carried it with me since returning to work. I’ve pretty much fully recovered from my hip replacement surgery and have been back to work since the beginning of April.

As I packed to leave today for work, is I decided it was time again to bring my camera along. Its amazing how one can get out of a routine and that’s happened with my photography. What better way to get started again as I’m in the city near where I was born and lived till leaving for the Marine Corps over 37 years ago.

While checking in at the hotel I’m staying I asked the hotel staff if there was an easy to access observation area to photograph from. Pretty cool that the hotel is right next to the Carew Tower and Observation Deck. I only had a few minutes on the observation deck as it closed at 6pm but was able to make a few photos.
