Not much to say... except to share some more shots from our backyard this afternoon.
I've decided to start tagging my posts with the lenses used. I saw some other bloggers were doing that and thought that's a pretty good idea, in case someone just want to see shots from a specific lens.
Today... we have the 35mm Summicron, version Iv, the "king of boken"!
My friend gave my son a grand toy today... a Ford truck that he can drive. Needless to say, he spend most of the afternoon in the backyard, cruising...
Me... just there to capture the moment. Nothing like some shades to get that Badboy-look.
How does a beginner amateur photographer justify the cost of Leica M9 to his wife? I promised that I'll take lots of great family photos, especially of our son. Well, today was one of those days... :)
In the morning, just snapping away while I watched Aidan play with his toys. The 50'Lux is really quite a lens... every time I shoot with it, I wonder why I bother shooting with any other lens! I just love everything about it... the built-in hood keeps the lens small and its rendering is just beautiful, especially when shot wide open.
Then we decided to checkout the local farmer's market, so I got a chance to shoot some more of Aidan outdoor while my wife bought some strawberries (his favorite). Wow, what a spoiled kid :)
Had a few minutes to spare this morning... so I decided to take a few snaps of the orchid plant that we had. Using sun light filtered through the window blinds, I tried to give it some interesting light and perspective. Not a lot of people shoots it from behind, exposing some of the veins and glow.
Even with a cloudy day, we had to go out and do something. It always amazes me how underused the LA Metro system is. Maybe the problem is because it doesn't start where you need it, and sometimes it doesn't stop where you want. But with a 4 year old, it can be quite an adventure for him. So we drove to the Goldline station at Madre St, then took the metro into Chinatown for some dimsum for lunch. Of course, there are always some photographic opportunities... More can be seen in the personal gallery [HERE].
Really missed going out and shooting lately... I just had to make do with what opportunities I get at home :)
We finished this 3000-piece puzzle some time last year (or was it the year before?), but we finally took the time and effort to glue it and frame it today. It's measured 48" x 32" in size... quite amazing to look at up close.
Hey, look what other critter we found around our house today...
My Journey into Leica...
A path not to be taken lightly, not without reservations, and not without dedication, but the results can be sweet, OH SO SWEET! This is a documentation of my trials and tribulations into the world of Leica Rangefinder Photography, and I hope you'll enjoy coming along with me.
