From the Window – Wyoming

I’ve started a new project called “From the Window”.  Living in the American west we spend a lot of time in our vehicles rather than walking or biking like most large cities or in European countries.  With my kids getting older I’m now able to let them drive so I can enjoy the scenery and document what I see.

This image was taken a few days ago while driving through Wyoming for our spring break.

Time Capsule

I began my photography journey while working in San Francisco about ten years ago.  I enjoy going back to revisit familiar places and find new adventures.

I like how the man in the back is looking over my right shoulder.  If he were looking towards the front like the rest of the people this image wouldn’t be interesting to me.

New Leica M10

Leica released the new M10 today.  Two things I really like about this compared to my M240 is the larger viewfinder and the dedicated ISO wheel on the top.  I don’t anticipate I will be switching to this body, my M240 body is 5 months old and will last me for a long time.  It’s nice that Leia builds their products so well I don’t have the desire to need the latest release.

Well done Leica on the improvements.  (image courtesy of Leica)

Kodak Ektachrome Returns

Film lovers rejoice, Kodak brings back 35mm Ektachrome.  To be honest, I’ve never used this film and am excited to give it a go.  I’ve had 2 rolls of expired Ektachrome in my freezer (below) for the past year and will be shooting it this year with hopefully a fresh roll as well.
