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

I try to get a window seat when I’m “riding” on the airline as I always have a window when I’m up front “driving”.  I was able to snag an exit row seat on the window on my flight from Los Angeles to Dallas. This row of seats in this aircraft was configured without a seat in front of mine.  I had an incredible amount of leg room.

My second leg, Dallas to Dayton, I was fortunate to get an upgrade to Business Class and again got a window seat. I had my window shade pulled down most of the flight to get some shut eye. When I happened to open it and saw the warm light rush in I quickly realized I was about to miss a sunset.

I immediately reached into my carry-on bag and grabbed my camera to get this photograph.
