I got a chance to go to the Couchbase[SF] conference in San Francisco this past weekend (on Friday the 13th, no less!). We decided to take the whole family up for a mini weekend vacation. While I'm in the conference all day Friday, wife and kids went to the Exploratorium, which is amazing from I've heard. Then we did the SF tour on Saturday, drove back on Sunday by swinging by the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I thought it was a jam-packed super fun weekend, but you wouldn't know it from all the whining and complaining about the long drives from my son and nephew. I'll probably split the post into three parts, showing the SF and Aquarium pictures later, but you can see all of them now [HERE].
As for lens choices... I wanted to take the 28-50-90 combo that I've been familiar with, but since the 35'Lux still has the "new lens smell", it bumped the 50'Lux off the list, and it stayed on the M9 for probably majority of the time. I have come to appreciate the versatilities of the 35mm focal length and the low-light capabilities of the 'Lux. It's a bit unfair, because now I'm treating the 28mm and 90mm focal lengths as a special occasion only option. Things will probably balance out later... I'm thinking maybe when I do bring multiple lenses, next time I may stick with one lens per outing just so I can get in the groove with each.
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.
