Signs of Fall

Signs of Fall

I’ve been resisting that fall is near. When I see these at the grocery store that means that halloween and fall are right around the corner.  The seasons seems to come and go a lot quicker than they used to.

The Perfect Shot

The perfect shot

What drew me to make this photograph was the expression on the woman’s face. She was trying so hard to get the “perfect picture” of Niagara Falls and making sure she held her camera just right. After developing the roll of film I noticed that the little girls shorts match the woman’s shirt giving them a connection.

New Leica M10

smith_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)

Venice – Slice of Light


Today’s configuration: Leica M(240) with Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.4

Venice is one of my favorite places to photograph. I spent a few days there last year and would love to go back for a week or two next time. This was taken early in the morning as the locals were heading to work and school. The shaft of light was gorgeous and I had to document what I saw.

Street Photography – Salt Lake City Utah

Today’s configuration: Leica M(240) with Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.4

I ventured out with fellow photographer Shaun this past weekend for a little street shooting in downtown Salt Lake City Utah.  We’ve hit a bit of a warm spell so it was nice to get out of our winter hibernation and enjoy the city.  I’m starting to like this type of photography and will be venturing out more in the coming months when I have time.  It’s no wonder many of the street shooters use a Leica camera.  I setup my camera to use hyperfocal distance focusing which allowed me to just concentrate on composition.  Street photography is harder than I thought, these images are not that great but I thought I would at least share a few that I liked.  The image above is my favorite from the evening.

Winter Scenes from Wyoming

Wyoming_Winter_2016

We decided to spend New Years at the cabin this year in Wyoming.  When we arrived it was -20 Fahrenheit, so we spent most of the time indoors but were able to get out in the afternoons to enjoy some fresh air.  My favorite time to shoot is just before sunset so I stopped at a few places in Thayne and Afton of places that caught my eye.
