That Moment

Emily Laughs

I called this post “That Moment” I actually call the picture “Emily Laughs.”

Let me explain.  Some of you may have read my blog already.  If not here is a story.  The Nikon D700 had just hit the market.  A mate had one and it was the “all-singing-all-dancing” camera at that time.  I nearly purchased one.   I just happened to start reading about Leica and the M6.  That’s what I wanted my dream camera from the 80’s.  I then found out they had a new Leica MP an all manual do it yourself total contrast to the Nikon.  What I knew best then was film.  I chose the Leica.  Then the feelings of  “Have I done the right thing?”  started to worm their way into my head.  To make a long story short when I saw this picture, It was that moment I knew I had made the right choice.

  1. With your talent you could have captured this shot with a pinhole camera you made yourself! As they (who the heck are “they”?) say, it’s not the equipment that makes a photographer. It’s the eye, the heart!
