The Upper Hand

This was another favorite image from watching a group of men arm wrestling this past weekend. The man on the left would take each match by dropping to his knees and over powering his opponent winning the match in seconds.

Dedication

I enjoyed watching these men arm wrestle and try all sorts of techniques to get the upper hand. The man on the right was quite a bit shorter and tried to get all the leverage he could by using the table. After they went back and forth several times he ended up winning the match

A day at the skate park

I took out a new(used) camera out Saturday(which I will write about later) and ran into these guys at the skate park and wanted to try out some zone focussing on my Leica M.  This was my first time using this method and I have to say I really like using it.  I was able to focus on my composition and not worry about messing around with the focus.  I can see why street photographers prefer this method.  These guys liked the attention and were more than happy to repeat some tricks for me.  It was a perfect day for shooting and skating, we’ve been in a bit of a cold spell and as you can tell by the snow in the background the temperature was hovering just above freezing.
