I was cleaning up the working folders in my Lightroom Library and found a bunch of images from my Leica M Monochrom that I haven't shared yet so I thought I would. I really enjoy shooting with his camera. It has often become my go to camera in the evening due to its high ISO capability. I wish my M9-P had higher ISO capability but other than that is is an absolutely fantastic camera. I found two absolutely classic sites this week that you should check out:
Get PRSM - You can get your very own PRISM account to allow you to track all of your online data!
This Charming Charlie - Snoopy cartoons mashed with lyrics from The Smiths.
Today's configuration: Leica M Monochrom with various lenses
You have to be fast in Japan taking photo as you will quickly get either a thumbs up or a peace sign...
A few months I went to Google to hear Trey Ratcliff speaking about photography and social media. Google Japan was in the same building as my old office just a few floors below. I have been there for lunch before. It is an amazing office.
Tom Anderson was with him. Tom was the founder of MySpace and if you ever had an account he was always your first friend. My space had tremendous success when first built in 2003 and was sold to News Corp in 2005 for $580 million. Tom recently picked up photography as a hobby and we occasionally comment on each others photos on Google+.
I haven't shot much with my Leica Summicron 90mm f/2 that I got from my friend David. I really like the compression effect you get when shooting at this focal length.
There is always a people photographing the trains on the tracks near my house.
A typical scene in my cool little neighborhood in Tokyo...
A few from my recent trip in San Francisco...
I have been traveling a ton lately but it seems everywhere I go people want to eat Asian Food.
My dinners in San Francisco;
Monday - Japanese
Tuesday - Japanese
Wednesday - Thai
Thursday - Chinese
Then while in Sydney:
Monday - Japanese
Wednesday - Malaysian
As you can imagine I get to eat a lot of asian food in Japan and sometimes a guy wants a big American or Australian Steak. I did end up having a great steak in Australia.
Huh? Must be one of those cultural things I don't understand...
Thanks for stopping by today...
