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.
Since we have just had Valentines day.

Back after a week off. Thanks Joe that eased my workload a little.
This picture is taken in Sweden on a boat trip. These people are friends. I was sitting opposite them taking shots before we sailed. I captured Just a brief moment their lives.
So that just remains to wish you dear readers a very Happy Christmas. See you all on the other side:0)

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.

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.
However I tried I couldn’t control the grain in this shot :0)
