  1. This is from a roll of Agfapan APX400 which I processed yesterday in Adox FX39. Leica M6 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5 Gerry
  2. Normally I shoot candidly, but because I wanted to get in tight and had the 35mm lens on, this time I asked for permission - no problem. image was cropped to about 50%. Leica M6 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5. Ilford HP5+. 1/125 @ f11. Adox FX-39 II dev. Gerry
  3. From my latest roll of Ilford HP5+ processed in Adox FX-39 Leica M6 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5 Gerry
  4. Another from my latest film back from the lab. This was taken on the M7 prior to getting rid of it (big mistake!) using the 35mm Summarit-M f2.5. Film is Kodak T-Max400 processed by Harman Labs who do a pretty good job. No idea of exposure (sorry) but was available light only. I particularly love the face of the little child in the background. Gerry
  5. I took this charming image candidly at my favourite café. It is not my normal practice to talk to my subjects, but if there are children involved I normally introduce myself and explain what I have done and ask for permission to use the image. I don't recall ever having been refused, although it is slightly more awkward shooting film as opposed to digital because you cannot show the parent the image. This young mother was quite happy with what I had done. Leica M7 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5 using Kodak T-Max 400 and only available light. 1/125 @ f2.8
  6. I haven't posted for a while for various personal reasons, but this came back from the lab today. Hope you like it Leica M7 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5 - Kodak TMY Gerry
  7. Back in 2000 I was invited to give a guest lecture at Nasau Community College on Long Island, New York. I took a number of photographs of the students while waiting to start, and have been revisiting them now. Leica M6 + 50mm Summicron f2. Available light and handheld but have no record of the camera settings. Kodak T400CN film which I had processed locally to avoid problems with x-ray machines at the airport on the way back (those were the days!) One basic error in the photo, that is my Billingham bag in the background (oops!) Gerry

    I was in two minds over this - I nearly dumped it but I liked its 'filmic' qualities so much I decided to keep it, and I now think it is one of the best images I have taken for a long time. To me it has the wonderful atmosphere of uprated Tri-X. Agree or don't agree, I don't really care, I just LOVE it - and wasn't it HC-B who said “Sharpness is a bourgeois concept". Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5 @ 1250 iso using available light only. 1/15th @ f5.6. Gerry
  9. A simple grab shot from my outing yesterday. Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5. 1/250 f6.8 @ 320iso Gerry
  10. A woman waiting to welcome the first client at the opening of a yoga class (Southampton, England) - verbal permission given. I spotted this as I was walking down the street and asked for permission to photograph her (very unusual for me to ask!). I had the 24mm Elmarit-M f2.8 ASPH fitted, so I shot with what I had. Leica M240 + 24mm Elmarit-M f2.8 ASPH. 1/180 f16 @ 400iso. Gerry
  11. Just a grab shot whilst walking around. Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5. Shot as .dng and converted to b&w using Lightroom Classic. Gerry
  13. Yesterday I took to the streets of Southampton for my first brief venture for 5 months. This is one of the resulting images. Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5. 1/500 @ f 11 and 250iso. I used a Kodachrome plug-in with Lightroom Classic. Gerry
  14. From todays walkabout in the centre of Southampton. Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5 Gerry
  15. Hi all. I always want to take photos, and I try to bring always the camera with me, to shoot and be happy 🙂. Sometimes, due to the pandemic, it's not the right moment to shoot, mainly because many people in Mexico don't care and don't wear a mask. I don't want to risk just for the pleasure of doing some street photography. Does it make sense? Every time I do out, I bring the camera with me, and while driving (in a safe way), I shoot from the window of my car at 30km/h approx. I use hyperfocal, practically point & shoot. When I'm lucky, my wife (and sometimes even my old dog) join me. And I don't drive 😂 but shoot 🙌 Sometimes from the passenger seat, some time on the back of the car. Depending on if you see the lateral rearview mirror, and/or the car frame window in the composition. Everything happens so fast, the car can't stop, and I have to focus quickly. I used zone focusing sometimes, and sometimes manually, depending on the situation. I would like to share with you this micro essay, to show a portrait of a Mexican city during these times, to use more my M10, in pursuit of mastering focus 😬 Sometimes I see a situation with superpotential, where I would love to stop the car and go out and compose well. But this is what the essay is about. Never stops the car and try to tell a story, or take just honest street photography. That's it. M10 + 35mm 2.8 Biogon + 50 Cron V + Photo Mechanic + Capture One + JpegMini P.s. You can see my gray pick up car in the photos sometimes 🤷‍♂️ Good vibes

  17. Leica MP w/50mm Summicron on Ilford FP 4+ in HC 110 H for 7.75mins at 20 C A woman shooting heroin on the sidewalk in Pioneer Square, Seattle. This is one of those shots that I am always torn as to shoot or walk on by. Street photography is new to me, really just began when I moved to Seattle and worked in a downtown office. I walk at lunch time to get out in the world away from A/C and artificial light. In three years this is one of the most depressing things I've come across, a woman shooting heroin in the middle of the day in public.
  18. A few recent and not so recent images from Romania, all shot with the Q. Thanks for looking!

  19. Don't know why, I always find this Summaron 35mm has a special mood. My other moody photos are at BigBigLens.com - Leica. What do you think?
  20. Hello guys , I just bought a 21mm Elmarit f2.8 lens (the old one) for my Leica MP Typ 240. Really enjoyed the lens. I just noticed that its min focus distance is 0.7 while i read on the internet that you can find a version that focus at 0.38. Any other differences between the two lenses ? Somebody here have experience with the close focus version ? I took some Street Pictures and wrote a little article for my blog: www.walkingphotographer.net/blog/21mm-street-photography Thanks for your time ! Eolo www.walkingphotographer.net
  21. I really love taking random street photography like this. Camera: Leica M-P (typ 240) Lens: Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. Location: Dubai - Jumeirah Beach Residence Welcome 2016
