I just received my MM from Leica NJ with a new sensor, cover, and adjustments. I thought I'd welcome it back with a new lens -- something I have not used in years -- a 90mm. I figured I'd keep the experiment low cost and found a good deal on a Voigtlander Lanthar. I think it will be a nice change sometimes.

Congratulations John, that has to feel good! I'm jealous, except I can see sending my camera now because it seems free of the crud.

Nice parting shot w your new 90

Thanks, David. Mine didn't have any obvious corrosion. Sometimes it would get spots with the telltale white rings, but they always cleaned off. Once winter arrived I thought I'd send it off and have it checked.

This lens renders so differently than my Zeiss lenses. But I thiink I prefer this more classic look and may now look for something comparable in 35 or 50. Endless, isn't it?

I have had my MM246 for nearly 4 weeks and use it at every opportunity.
Here are a few shots that I have taken so far...


Week 4 - "Predator" by Mark Pope, on Flickr

Hope you like them.

I should probably just send mine in and work it around when I won't be traveling so either really soon or I will wait until the fall to do it.

As for lenses, there are too many possibilities! For me in the 35, and 50 department, I've been happy with plain-jane Summicrons but last summer picking up the 50 Sonnar, it became the body-cap for months. I did play with the CV 75 1.8 a while back and that is one I may pick up before too long.

There's a handful more if you click on either of those and goto the album if you're interested.

I visited my son in Tucson over the weekend. While there we went to the still life show at the CCP - Flowers, Fruit, Books, Bones. Lots of nice work from greats like Kertesz, Ralph Gibson, and many others.

Below, a still life of my own from my son's house. Such beautiful light out there, and so different from that of the Midwest.

I know what you mean, though I got rid of my darkroom a number of years ago, selling off the equipment to finance a Leica M9-P amongst other things.
Having the MM246 is like having a darkroom in my camera bag. I had once pondered getting a film camera with a view to developing my own B&W negs again and scanning them, but now I wonder 'why would I want to do that'?

Many thanks! I'm hoping to make my way back out there in early April -- the show at the Leica Store in Bellevue, Washington will be hung on April 2nd, and I'm planning on driving out there via New Mexico (I know, quite a circuitous route!).

Sounds great Vince. Good luck with the show. I think it will be another year or so before I can get back out to NM.

One from today

The surf is quite a ways out so I instructed my assistant here to hang close by. After a few minutes he climbed back to the tracks where he waited patiently. The climb from there back to the car is pretty vertical and lots of crushed rocks.

In addition to the still life exhibit now underway, the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson has a show of self-published photography books selected from submissions around the US. They set up chairs and tables for helping yourself and viewing them. Lots of very creative work on display. And such a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

And maybe the first time i've thought I might actually like the result of internal lens\filter reflections.

And is this Guiness, or is it a local stout?

Thanks, DwF!

That's a local stout that they had on nitro. Theirs is somewhat similar to the Left Hand Nitro Stout, which is much more widely distributed than this brewery 4 blocks from my home. Maybe you've had one on draught? After traveling in Ireland I have a soft spot for Guinness, but this was definitely still a yummy pint. Slinte!

The head on that draught screamed Nitro....I should have guessed that detail as well

Have not had Guiness in Ireland but there was a tavern around the border of Oakland and Berkeley that I visited a couple of times in the 80s that were known for pouring Guiness at room temp
-Yum! I will look for Slainte.

David


...maybe someone here will know that place.

I'm convinced that Guinness is only at it's best in the country where it's made. It just tastes different to me. Maybe it's a freshness thing, dont know, but it's distinctly different. I tested this immediately after returning from our trip. As for temp, cant say I ever had room temp Guinness anywhere in Ireland (or the UK for that matter), but it definitely wasnt as cold as they serve beer here in the US, which is a good thing. Too cold \ warm does most any beverage a disservice.

And I might be missing the sarcasm\joke, but Slainte is "Cheers!" in Irish
Pronounced roughly "SLAWNcha". Was just wishing that to you as a parting greeting.

The name of the beer I had is called the Moo Lab from Platt Park. I seriously doubt they distribute it anywhere. It's a one time special that I think is just in the tap room. The Left Hand Nitro Stout is really a good example of that one though. Edit: Just be sure to follow the instructions on the bottle to "Pour Hard".

I missed your parting Cheers reference, sorry. I thought you were letting me know the brewery who made the stout. Apparently there is a beer with that name from a craft brewer in Wisconsin, and a Brewery by that name in Salem, Oregon.

In any case, bottoms up! ....and I have heard the same about Guinness from friends who have had it in Ireland.
