Restraint, revisited.

As I look at all the images from the Leica M10 being being shared online, I have one recurring thought:

Restraint, people.

It seems the entire photography community’s visual sensibility has become warped with InstagramVCSO, and Nik filters.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve used (and continue to use) all of this gimmicky stuff.

Buy I try to inform myself with samples from the real deal… film.

I guess I’m just getting too old for this stuff.

Mamiya 6 – Test Shot #1.

See the blank frame?   …I forgot to take the lens cap off.

Within the circle below I had photographed a majestic unicorn that had meandered into our garden.

Now, the world will never see what I saw.

“Leica should drop the optical viewfinder for an EVF [on the M camera]”.

For all of you who wish this, I truly hope Leica never listens to you.

(no offense)
