Black (& White) Friday

Black (& White) Friday

I got up early today and as I was heading out the door at 6:45 as usual I realized I didn't have any early morning meetings for once.   The benefit of working for a US based company - Thanksgiving Weekend!   While it isn't a holiday in Japan I can definitely feel the effect on my calendar and email volume.   I decided to slow down and enjoy my commute into the office with a more leisurely stroll with my camera.  I don't get to do it often lately but I really enjoy it when I do. As I was going through and editing this I was really happy with this set.  The micro details that this camera is able to capture is absolutely amazing to me.  I wish I could post images 2000 pixels wide on here so you can see the extreme details in the images.   I posted a few on my Google+ and Facebook Page so check them out.   These images aren't perfect.  Actually they have a lot of flaws in them but I really like how they came out.  You'll notice it is a bit differently to how I usually shoot but for me it was a refreshing change.

Today's configuration: Leica M Monochrom with a Summicron 28mm f/2.0

I had a meeting in Toranomon this afternoon.   I love how this picture came out.  I love the light hitting the mirrors on the back taxi...

My first car in Tokyo 14 years ago was an Audi TT just like this.  My wife called it my 'punk car'...
