One eighth note.

Technical: 1/8 sec (handheld).

For a long time, I’ve wanted to photograph the headstock of this guitar, at a certain time of the day when a faint stream of light makes its way through the back window of our house.

I’ve never bothered trying with my M9, because I knew it wouldn’t quite get it.

So yesterday I tried with my newly-acquired M3, as I was testing it for the first time.

To my eyes:  it got it.


Leica M3, 50mm Summilux ASPH @ f/1.4, and Kodak Eastman Double-X (5222).
