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

As the sun came up over the city of Dallas, Texas I was able to grab a photo out my hotel window. Before heading to bed the evening before I had not paid any attention to the direction my room faced and had not planned on capturing the sunrise this morning. But I did want to get up in time to get my “Grab and Go Meal” offered by the hotel. Due to the virus, hotels are no longer providing their normal breakfast buffets. The Hilton Anatole hotel, a top tier hotel, has 1200 rooms and you would think that it would be busy enough to provide a little more than a “Grab and Go Meal”. However, it’s not the case. I’ve stayed at this hotel more than once in the past and each time I’ve stayed the hotel was always busy. At least one or two conventions going on and lots of business travelers. The pandemic and local government rules have had a major impact on the travel industry.

As you can see, I was the only one at the “Atrium” and not another sole in and around the hotel as I checked out.
