I was out with my wife this afternoon on our Sunday afternoon date and we stopped by the Tokyo Photo Show at Tokyo Midtown in Roppongi.   I don’t go to these nearly enough so I was glad I had a chance to spend some time at the show.   In one of my goals of becoming a student of photography I want to do this more…

The show is going on for one more day… There are some amazing photos and well worth the trip if you can get there.

I was turning a corner when I heard ‘Dave’.   This nice women stopped to me to let me know she is a regular reader of ShootTokyo.    I love when people do that.   I spent a ton of time on ShootTokyo but it can get ‘lonely’ on this side of the blog.   Even though I have 10s of 1,000s of subscribers and readers I only get a 10 or 20 comments per post.   Often I find myself second guessing the numbers.   Are people really reading this?   Hello-o-o-o-o

Thanks for stopping me to say ‘Hi’ Kathleen…it was nice to meet you.

I love viewing these shows as it helps me to see what I like and don’t like.   So does trying different types of gear…

I have decided to sell my Nikon D3S, Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, and  Nikon 105mm Macro.    I never use them and honestly I am constantly confused by all of the features.   I just don’t need them for my style of photography.  I am much happier shooting manually with my Leica M6-J or in Aperture Priority with my Leica M9-P.    If you are Tokyo based and serious interested, drop me an email.

So what should I get when I sell them?

I have been thinking about the beautiful Leica M Monochrom.   They are starting to take orders and this could be a very nice addition to my Leica collection.   It is different to what I already have and the high ISO is very attractive.   I saw the recent announcement on the Leica M but honestly I think I will wait until the “P” version comes out.   I am pretty happy with my Leica M9-P and I don’t see anything that makes me want to jump at it.   I really don’t like how some of the buttons on the back are silver.  It just seems like an odd design choice given how clean Leica design is.

I was fascinated by this photo…
