  • One good thing about a M camera is that many people think it is a cheap retro camera. It doesn't look expensive when you look at it from a distance. Once you hold it it is a different thing. In ...
  • Thanks Michael. I like the color that I get out of Leica M files. While I love B&W I could never fully go for a Monochrom. D!RK
  • Thank you. D!RK
  • I like that. It makes me look at that image differently. Thanks for sharing. D!RK
  • Thank you. In my blog entry I write specifically about this image, the little guy in his Superman shirt, and the area where it was taken. A mistake I did was that I walked from a sunny street into ...
  • Thank you Daedalus. I think that most of them are from low-income families but they are dressed differently. They are kids and they had fun playing on the street and this tall stranger, that ...
  • Last month I went to Istanbul for ten days and explored the city with my Leica M240. It is a beautiful place to go and a feast for any photographer. I walked to and through many parts of Istanbul ...
  • I know what you mean. I have a Bowery and Brixton bag and on the Bowery the lid doesn't cover the corners of the opening. A slightly wider lid would have solved this. Overall I like the size of...

  • I am a passionate street photographer. But this winter I decided to focus on one abandoned bicycle and follow it throughout the winter period to visualize the impact of snow in one spot. While I am ...
  • Replied in Winter Cycle
    Thanks Vetteran. Thanks John. I think you are right about the colors. They are very specific to Boston. Or at least new England. You look at the tones and you know that it can't be NY, SF, or LA. I ...
  • Created discussions Winter Cycle
    During our record breaking snowfalls in Boston I captured the 'life' of an abandoned bicycle on the street. I went there before and after every snowstorm and took photos from a similar angle. My ...
  • Thank you. So far I have never approached a magazine with my work. Wouldn't even know to whom I need to send it. :-) D!RK
  • Hi Daedalus. Yes, that is mainly the lens. The combination of very shallow depth of field and very sharp focus in the right spot creates a beautiful 3D effect. There are other lenses that do that ...
  • Hi Daedalus. I guess it is the camera/lens combination. I do some minor tweaks but not much in Lightroom. Overall the Leica M240 creates warmer images compared to the M9. Still I often change the ...
  • One thing that I like about Leica is that they don't replace the models every year. It doesn't create a graving for getting the new model. When they launch the cameras they are usually well ...
  • Thanks for the compliment. On most of the images it doesn't look like that a lot of snow if falling down. Most of the time it was not a ton at once but more a steady, not ending stream of small ...
  • During and between the Boston snow blizzards I used my M240 with a 50mm Summilux and a 21mm 2.8 Biogon to capture some street photography. Overall I enjoyed using the camera in cold, snowy ...
