She’s emerging from the darkness of a 6 day fever.

And with this post, I’m emerging from radio silence.  Thank you again to all who donated to the site.

As you know, I’m going down the list of donators each day and divulging the identity of my mystery lens, which can currently be purchased for less than a Leica lens hood.

This is the first colour shot I’ve created with the undisclosed lens.  I see impressive colour rendition and pulling of shadow detail, but it also helps to have the mighty M9 sensor capturing those precious photons.

On a related note, I’d like to thank the great Mr. Youxin Ye for repairing my undisclosed lens in record time and making sure the aperture and focus rings are working smoothly.  He also removed a considerable amount of dust from within the lens barrel.  Thank you Youxin!

    Glad to hear she’s on the mend!

    Great rendering here…and fantastic turnaround by Youxin. Happy to hear the lens is also back to full health.

    Welcome back from radio silence and an internet blackout…and happy news of your daughter’s fever break. Feeling pooky (a non-technical medical term) and missing summer fun is a shame. The image has beautiful light and color. Your mystery lens and the M9 get along very well. Heck, with you behind this camera, the lens could be a coke bottle. Thanks for posting the image…

    Bon retour.


  4. A nice combination of classical expression and lighting and very contemporary subject matter.

    I wish I could say that RFs were my favourite type of camera. Maybe one day… 😉

    Beautiful portrait. You have inspired me to pick up my M9 again after relying on the Sony A7s too long.
