The Leica M9.

Leica M9

I was thinking this morning, after surveying the current crop of digital cameras, that if a brand new camera was released today and it was called the CaNikoSoFujOlySigRicoPenta X1-Turbo, but it had the output of the M9 at base ISO, it would sell like crazy.

Sony RX100, revisited.

Sony RX100

Almost a year ago, my wife took this image with her Sony RX100 (Mark 1) and I processed the RAW file.

This week we had a large print of it made and upon close inspection I’ll be damned if I can see a difference in quality between this and other images I’ve created with the Leica M9 and Nikon D810 (LOL, perhaps I don’t know what I’m doing…).

Announcement: De Mello Coffee.

Announcement De Mello Coffee and Prosophos

I am happy to announce that I will be photographing for De Mello Palheta Coffee on an ongoing basis for their social media content.

(As some of you may recall, I was there in early June enjoying their coffee when I photographed this image.)

I am really looking forward to this… and I’ll be sharing some of the images on this site.

Love (Prince Edward Island).

But I am a heart, and I love.”

And a heaven in a wild flower 

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand 

And eternity in an hour”

There are moments in life when you’re about to turn a corner, but you stop to look behind you.

Because you know it’s your last look.
