Sailing with Schooners

Black And White Photography, Kirk, Photography

schooners-1

In Gloucester, MA every year we have a schooner festival. It’s a unique experience and I am lucky enough to be able to climb on board one of them whenever I want. This year I chose to shoot only in B&W mode on my Leica with my father’s old Leica/Schneider 21mm Super Angulon from 1963. In color this lens has a heavy magenta vignette so I tend to use it only in B&W.  A couple of years ago I had a CLA done on it and the optics are stunning.

  1. Superb image Kirk 🙂 I had the pleasure of attending a Leica event along with fellow contributor Patti last October and took a Leica 240 for a test ride for about 2 hours. They definitely are fine machines although they are a little too rich for my blood. I think the 35mm lens I was using cost more than the camera body. Excellent work.
