…was the answer I got when I asked what was going on and by the look of it I wasn’t the only one wondering the same thing.

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.

Snow & Fire Escape

boston snow (1 of 1)

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.

Hearts on fire…almost

Back after a week off. Thanks Joe that eased my workload a little.

I just love old steam driven traction engines. I offer this up for your entertainment.

An afterthought with this shot…You spend a fortune on camera and glass,and turn the shot into a pencil drawing…I must be mad 😉

My other big pastime is cycling I took this on a visit to the Lee Valley Velodrome in London. I even got to cycle around it for an hour. One of the bucket list.
