So nice Allen.....Used Leicas in the 40's,50's and 60's before moving into MF & LF. Your pictures seem like a combination of the fine grain of Panasonic X and the contrast and pop Tri X. You have a nice eye and my kind of PP. Your have to love that Lux on your M. I carried two bodies most of the time.....35 and 90. The 35 got most of the work. Can't afford Leica gear anymore. Shooting right now with a Sigma DP2. Sigma's coming out with new B&W software for the camera next week, so I plan on a revisit to the joy of B&W, but I doubt the results will be quite as strong as what your getting. I look forward to checking in on you again to see you stuff. Do you have a web site?

Thanks so much for the kind words.

I'm sure you'll do just fine with what you have.

No web site. Most of my clients are in healthcare and I have about 26 different clients. Some use me a couple times a year and some several times a month. I don't advertise and I don't do weddings or family portraits and the type of work I do a website could hurt me because of privacy issues.

The look is nice. Reminds me of 400CN or TMax pulled a stop.

What glass do you have?

I haven't shot anything lately for myself. Busy shooting for work. Been busy mounting, matting and framing and I'm so sick of it.....

Had lunch with a good bud today and I took this.
I think this illustrates the range of the MM . Very fast edit.

I have all the recent Summicrons (28-35-50-75-90). I don't need more in life, except my Hassie of course. :)

Is that Ninja from Die Antwort at Cabin on 3rd Ave.?  Or Lakeside?

I know him pretty well.  Shot him and Yolandi before they were Die Antwort.  Good stuff, and nice shot.

I have NO IDEA who it is. I was walking past this open bar window in Wicker Park, Chicago and as I walked by I noticed at that exact moment he mimicked the picture behind him and I pushed the shutter. The next step I took changed the relationship with the picture and him and he shifted out of that position.
