Realignment

Facebook, two weeks from now and my account will be deleted. Linkd In is next. My blackened toes and moments of clarity in-between evenings imbibing cans of Devils Bit have brought me to the simple and sweeping realization. Now is now, now is gone. Now is now. Everything hinges on now.

Sometimes the beautiful and intriguing come along when one least expects it.

The Leica 50mm Elmar

with 2 comments

The Leica 50mm Elmar is the country cousin of the 50mm Summicron. But it has something special. Shooting with it takes a similar √©lan to using hands to print an image in b&w wet process. It has a long focus throw and while I’ve enjoyed it’s unusual ergononomics, I could never make up my mind about it. Untill I sent it off to Malcom Taylor Leica repair in Hereford, UK. It came back in almost new condition, not bad for a fifty year old lens. So the Elmar is a keper. Beautiful low contrast images. Processing the Leica M8 files in the latest version of Aperture is a painless way to process. More time to shoot, that’s the way it should be.

Loads of Travelling

leave a comment »

Once again it’s copious amounts of car time. The last three weeks have been just one constant road trip after another with a couple of days at home. The kids are beginning to notice my absence. I picked up a hamstring injury preparing for a marathon in November and thanks to all the car time it’s not really improving, it just seems to rotate around and around the upper leg and hip. Bummer.

I’ll just have to parcel up some sympathy and leave it under the christmas tree for Christmas day. Mmm, some sympathy, with a few glasses of Connemara Peated Single Malt, some good food and the kids creating havoc. All this before 7am. Never mind the hamstring, bring on the nut loaf…
