Pastime (Leica SL + 50mm Summilux-SL)

June 8, 2017

I love nothing more then to walk through my neighbourhood taking photos. I’d love it a bit more if the 50SL were lighter and could focus faster & closer.. But I guess I can’t have it all.
And Leica isn’t likely to send me a 75APO to test, so I guess I’ll just have to wait like everyone else. But maybe it’ll be a better walk around lens for life’s little details. I hear it focuses closer is smaller/light and that’s always a plus for a lens that one takes on walks.

Here are a few random shots of things I like to shoot that don’t really move, so I don’t have to worry so much about the AF speed of the lens.

Also yes, I like to shoot succulents. I have 100′s of images of them shot with all manner of Leica lenses. I don’t know why, I just like shooting succulents with Leicas.

Just playing around with the Leica SL and 50mm Summilux-SL while on a stroll with my wife Emily.
(Fun Fact: I linked the photos directly from my wife’s site because I didn’t want to upload them twice.)

Not a review site

June 10, 2012

Disclaimer: These posts are not reviews. They’re just my insights, observations and opinions. Do with them what you will.

I started this site as a way to catalogue my thoughts, as well as stop myself from second guessing my instincts on lens sales and illogically re-buying lenses. Trust me, it’s happened. See my 50 Summicron review.

This site’s secondary purpose is that it allows me to share personal photos with friends and the world. This means that if I feel like editing the photos before I post them up, then I do. So really it’s not a fair “review” site for anyone but me, if I had the intention of reviewing my own photos.

If any of my content is helpful, you’re welcome! Either way, thank you for stopping by and I hope you’ll enjoy the photos :D
