    Leica Leica M lens quality control disappointment

    I satisfied a lifelong desire to own a Leica M camera by purchasing an new M10 a month ago. With the camera, I purchased the Summilux 50mm f1.4 and Summicron 35mm f2 lenses. I shot Canon SLRs and Pro DSLRs for 40 years before switching to Fuji X cameras and Fuji lenses about four years ago. The...

    Dereliction Too much prettiness in the SIJ. Time to get a little dirty. This is a derelict property very close to where we live. In its heyday it must have been a gorgeous piece of property.

    Guard house at Caguas Botanical Gardens. The night guard was actually quite perplexed at the sight of a guy wearing a tie (came straight from work) pulling a camera, tripod and flashlight in the darkness to take a photograph. Didn't dare asking him to pose for fear he would ask me to leave...

    Once again, before I knew it, it was 7pm with no photo to show for the day. Rather than look for another night scene, I decided to show you the third member of the Ramirez household, my son Antonio. The photo was lit using two Canon 580EXII flash units, stand mounted, one at camera left with...

    This is what happens when all of a sudden, it's 7 o'clock and you have no shot for the day. Got into my car drove to Plaza Palmer and took several photographs of the Christmas decorations (which are still up and lit) and of the trees. I rather like this one, though.
