  1. I shot this in Beijing in 1998 using a Leica M6 and 50mm Summicron f2 lens. The film was Tri-X. I have just got around to scanning it as part of my efforts to digitise many years of film images. I guess these streets have disappeared now since the rebuilding for the Olympics. I have just started shooting film again with a M7!

    The Crickets

    Back in 1998 I went on a package tour to Beijing with my wife, but the images have lain pretty dormant in my filing cabinet since. I am now going through some of my older work and scanning it, and I was particularly pleased with this one which was shot on Fuji Provia using an M6 and Summicron-M f2. The exact details have been lost in the annal of time, but I think it was taken in the Forbidden City and shows a man who has brought his caged crickets out to enjoy the winter sunshine. I remember reading that Marc Ribaud )Magnum) had gone to China to photograph the Tiananmen Square 'happenings' in 1989 but had been so fascinated by people in the cafes with crickets he missed the main event. This then I guess is a sort of tribute to him.
  3. Taken back in 1998 using a Leica M6 with 50mm Summicron-M f2 and Fuji Provia film. Recently scanned and post-processed in LRCC Gerry
  4. Hi everyone! It's time to say hello. I've been lurking and learning on this forum for quite some time. I recently came back from a three week trip to Asia (mostly in China, a couple of days in Seoul) with the Q being my sole camera. I must say that it performed superbly and met all my expectations in performance, image quality, portability, and more. Here are the photos: http://portfolio.alexjiang.com/2016-Trip This is the first trip during which I did not lug around my Canon DSLR, bag full of lenses, and a tripod. It's just so... liberating. The sharpness and rendition of the lens is just top-notch, as one would expect. Handheld HDR was completely doable thanks to 10 fps and the quiet, vibration-free leaf shutter. I even did several handheld HDR multi-row panos that had no problem being stitched together in Lightroom. My only concern at this point is the threat to my wallet. Seeing the results I was getting while in Beijing, I couldn't help myself but to stop by the Leica store and checking out the M-P and them lenses... But maybe the Q is all I need. -alex
  5. I took this on a visit to the Forbidden City in Beijing in 1998 and this is a scan from the original Velvia transparency. I used a Leica M6 back then, and this was probably taken with the 50mm Summicron f2 but I have no exposure details. It forms part of a gallery of Beijing images in a gallery which I am gradually adding to and can be viewed at http://archive.gwpics.com/gallery/Beijing-1998/G00001zr0M27_Rk4 Thanks for looking. Gerry

    The Opera Singer

    When I was in Beijing in 1998 one of the things which struck me most was the friendliness of the people, and their openness – and remember this was 18 years ago, long before today’s leaders were in place. I felt very able to walk around the streets and photograph with no problem at all, and was often invited to sit and talk to people (especially older people) who seemed desperate to practice English with me. On one such occasion I sat with a group of elderly men playing traditional instruments and singing Chinese opera just for the fun of it in one of Beijing’s many parks. This gentleman had a particularly strong voice, and talked to me for some time in broken English about the state of the world, which is always a favourite topic of older men. This image was taken on my trusty Leica, and scanned from a colour transparency. Taken on a Leica M6 and scanned from transparency. Gerry
  7. I am continuing to scan and catalogue some of my transparencies from the days when I shot with a Leica M6, and this was taken on that camera in Beijing in 1998. I can tell you it was shot on Fuji Velvia but I have no lens/aperture details although I suspect it was the 50mm Summicron. Gerry
  8. I took this on a trip to Beijing in 1998 using my M6, and I have just scanned it to give it a new life. I am sorry but I have no details stored with the original, but can say that it was taken on Fuji RDP 100iso film. I hope you like it! Gerry
  9. I was all set to purchase the Leica Q on Monday. I had sold my Canon gear in the previous weeks and couldn't wait to get the Leica. I live in Changchun city, China and the closest Leica store to me is in Beijing, about a 7 hour train ride. So I travelled down for one night and got a really bad reception at the store. I was not allowed to try the camera, let alone hold it. I had travelled this far and thought, well, I have read all the reviews I should get it anyway. The price was 32,000 RMB which is 5,153 US or 4,725 euro. Much higher than other places around the world. Still, it's the only Leica store and with all the warranty's and after sales care, I decided I would pull the trigger. When I was ready to buy, even though I couldn't try it, even though it's more expensive, the sales person wouldn't sell it to me unless I purchased 9,000RMB worth of accessories! That's 1,448 US, 1,328 euro. Cases, straps, things I didn't want. I decided not to purchase and walked away feeling like they didn't even want my custom. (almost like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman ;-)) I travelled 14 hours, was exhausted and came back with nothing. What I'm wondering is, is this a representation of Leica or just China? Has anyone else experienced this? I would normally hold Leica very high but I've had better care in a sweet shop. Almost turn me off investing in their products.
  10. Interested in cropping suggestions. I tried cropping it myself, but I can't find anything that I like better than the full frame. Bigger on Flickr
  11. With an obvious debt to David Bailey's portrait of Michael Caine I intended to make it B&W, but the colour is also nice - which do you prefer?
