  1. The middle shot is terrific. Next time anyone asks to see a family photo, show them that one. 🙂

    And if people ask what they are looking at, explain that you are on top of that tower in a fight with an international supercriminal that MI6 has been tracking for years, and that you had just thrown the punch that sent him falling to his terrifying and spectacular demise.

    Hello, thanks for sharing your talent on this blog.
    I most of all like your portrait’s sometimes they are very fine art in colors tones composition and most of all i suppose smooth light !
    I am puzzeld in how you get such nice skin tones with the M9.

    I had the M9 and 50 summilux and never got your tones even in the best of lights.
    Do you use light reflectors or flash fill in or just post processing ? (sorry for the geek questions)
    After my M9 got corroded, i got a second hand m240 but same skin tones problems for me.

    Ps:These are your last photos with the M9 !
    I’m suprised you have let it go.

    Yes for portraiture you new nikon and 35 is doing wonders, so smooth almost feels MF at times, so i understand your statement about leica being to late with old sensors compared to the new ones that do wonders… but hey you had more than 10 years with leica, that had stopped gas like it did for me…

    (except now i’m all dreamy of 35 fle’s and 50 apo’s and going thru the same existential questions as you did , Apo or Lux yeah both …. nah….LOL and no i won’t go the SL route (lovely IQ one has to admit but huge MF size, heavy ugly german design) but nor the nikon D850 (amazing IQ with such a natural smooth as MF bokeh with your 35 on your photos !) Kind regards,

    Martti…

    • Thank you for your nice thoughts, and for taking the time to write your comment.

      The M9 and I were a good team. It was the best digital camera I’ve ever photographed with. But the M3 is my favourite camera of all, and that’s what I’m currently using.

      I really do think Leica should have made another CCD-sensor camera. I think it would have been a success.
