You have a sense to anticiapte great shots and be at the right place at the right time. Great work.
Thanks Klaus -- guess it's just dumb luck

Almost home from my long drive -- hope to be back out West soon.

Vince, thank you. It was sunset light, what we photographers like most.

Flat Twin, I will hang it on my wall.

Excellent atmospheric shot with great backlight on the plants, frost is literally the icing of this shot

Here some more recent concert shots :

Simon, The light play in your foreground and the mist is really nice. I also shoot with the v4 28 and love that lens!

David, thanks for the comment. There was an awful lot of sunlight and contrast that morning and its amazing that there is no flare anywhere in the image. I've owned the 3rd version 28 Elmarit and liked it very much but this version 4 lens seems to be even more capable with a higher overall resolution. It works well on the Monochrom so I'll go on learning it. My only complaint is that it seems to be a bit contrasty on film but I'm enjoying it...

Regards

Simon

Simon I only briefly used the v4 when shooting film and contrast wasn't an issue for me, I will say that my experience comparing this and other 28 lenses to the Aspheric version is that they are considerably less contrasty than it is.

Cheers,
David

I've shot a lot in the southwest.I especially love northern New Mexico. Having said that my work from there is not near as revealing and powerful as Vince's work from that area. I tend to be more at home on the streets in large cities but I so love the Southwestern United States and Vince makes images there that really get to the heart of it all. Thanks Vince for sharing these inspiring images.

Many thanks Allen -- I just got back from a two-week drive out there and back, and the minute I got home I wanted to get back in the truck and drive right back out.

The one thing I try to avoid doing out there are the typical landscape etc photos that many photographers seem to do out there (believe me it is tough!) -- call it my own quirkiness or my desire to find out really what the 'Spirit of the West' means (or at least my interpretation of it). It's so completely different to where I grew up (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) and where I've been living for the past 20 years (Baltimore-DC corridor), but I feel so at home out there. Much more so than when I go to Toronto to visit family -- the city has changed so much since I lived there I hardly recognize it any more.

The 'Mapping the West' show that just finished at the Leica Store in DC is going to be showing at the Leica Store in Bellevue, Washington in April of next year, and it will be up until June. From there who knows what's next.

I'm hoping that I can drive out to Bellevue via New Mexico in April, and it will afford me the opportunity to see new parts of the West I haven't yet experienced.

Thanks again for all the encouragement and appreciation.

Vince, If you decide once in Bellevue to drive north out of the city and toward Vancouver, feel free to contact me or stop in. Bellingham is just 20 mins south of the border. I will be sure to see the show when it is in Bellevue.

Intro

Some shots from a recent trip to Cabo.

This is also my first post so I figured I would include a selfie!

This camera (MM240) is really so amazing. I recently traded in my MP240 for it and dont miss the color one bit!

I shoot mostly BW film and this is camera really almost gets there!

Santa was in town


Sinterklaas met een bijbaan by Albert K., on Flickr

In Holland we have (had??) a tradition of Sinterklaas, a precurser of Santaclaus, that we celebrate around December 5th. This Santaclaus was clearly a Sinterklaas, his voice, mimics, and habits were just like the old Sint.
