Grand Army Of The Republic

I love this old GAR building in downtown Rockport. The paint is peeling off the bricks and there is always a flag hanging, just not in this photo. Leica M-P 240 w/ Leica 28 mm Elmarit V1.

Tree And Building

This tree has always drawn me to it early in the morning spring and fall. The light is low and the shadows are wonderful. The building across the street is a wonderful in it’s design. The out of focus clouds and building really give an interesting feel to this image. Leica M-P 240 w/Leica 35mm Summicron.

Fence and Shadows

I’ve been trying to catch this fence just right for a while. A couple of weeks ago I managed to do it justice. Leica M-P 240 with 50mm Summilux.

Snow & Fire Escape

Last year around this time I was at a Kelby seminar in Boston. It snowed lightly all day and interesting images were all around. I had my Sony Nex 7 with me and a couple of Leica lenses with me. This image was made with the Leica 90mm Tele Elmar.

White Bark

This image was made awhile ago and I just came across it. I was out shooting with an intern on assignment for the group of newspapers I worked for at the time as a Photo Editor.  I was teaching this intern about light and how B&W can be such a powerful tool. This tree had white bark that could not be ignored. I had the Leica M-P 240 and the 50mm Summilux with me and worked on this composition knowing that I would convert to B&W since the only real color was the sky. The texture on the tree just popped once it was converted.
