I managed to get out today for a short walk in the town centre, and sat next to this lady whilst drinking my coffee. She was engrossed in the book and didn't notice me.

 

Taken with my Leica M9 with the 24mm Elmarit f2.8.

Gerry, wonderful photo.  I'm curious.  With the 24mm you must have been sitting within a few feet of her.  Did she hear the shutter?  Did you raise the camera to your eye and compose or did you "shoot from the hip"?

Firstly, thanks for the compliment on the image. We were sat on adjoining tables outside the cafe, so I guess there was about 4 or 5 feet (1.2 to 1.5 meters) between us. Both of us had our backs to the window. I shot using the24mm 'add-on' viewfinder to the eye, and no, she did not appear to hear the shutter. Alternatively she assumed I was photographing something else, she was engrossed in her book and never even looked up.

 

Thanks again for your interest,

 

Gerry

      I escaped into the Hampshire countryside yesterday for the first time since lockdown started, and found this beautiful scene in the South Downs National Park. Hope you like it!

      Like so many I am in a lockdown situation, and as a safeguard I have not ventured out for many week because of my age and heart condition. Those around me are keen to keep me a live for some reason! 😄 I have therefore been exploring the home environment, and also exploring my under-used 24mm Elmarit-M f2.8 ASPH.
      Here is one from my garden which was taken with the Elmarit on my M240, and then converted to black and white in Lightroom CC. Technical details are 1/90 f8 @ 2000iso Init is pretty dark under the oak tree). Hope you like it!
