What do you do on a cold winter’s day when the light is bad and you have nothing to photograph? Well, if you’re a geek like me you take photographs of your cameras of course!
In the image below, you will notice that all Nikon logos (and identifying gold rings on the lenses) have been taped over. That’s because I don’t want to be a walking billboard for Nikon. The gear is still recognizable to most enthusiasts but not necessarily at first glance (LOL, with the possible exception of the cartoonishly large 200/2).
They say DSLRs are a dying breed but the inevitability of their demise has increased their appeal to me after all of these years of shunning them in favour of rangefinders. It also helps that Nikon produced something special in the form of the D850 and D500.
I’ve often photographed my Leica gear as it came and went, but never cared enough about my Nikons to do the same… until now.
