1Q84 by Murakami

What a long day… I was out my door at 6:15am this morning and off to the gym.  Now I am sitting here at 12:49am to write my blog post for the day.   The sky was beautiful as I was walking into the gym.  I took a moment to capture it. This is my view from my...

A walk with my new Leica M9

I ran down to Leica Ginza on Friday after work to pick up my new M9… I was having some electrical issues with my M9 and Leica has not been able to get to the bottom of it.   After going back and forth a couple of times they have decided to replace my M9 with a...

Shooting Tokyo

A walk with the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8

Last week I picked up the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 for my D3s.    I shot the comparable lens when I was shooting Canon and really miss the versatility of it.   I tend to shoot at fairly short focal lengths and I find this the perfect zoom lens for me.   It is the upper end...
