Hockey Girl, in action.

This was photographed through the arena glass and under poor lighting, using the Leica M9/M-E and 75mm Summarit (see my review here).  Not exactly “sports gear” but good enough to get this shot of my daughter.

Technical considerations:

  • f/2.5 | 1/350 sec | ISO 1250
  • The DNG file was “pushed” two stops in LR for an “effective” ISO of 5000.
  • White balance was manually set during post-processing.

How many summers do you have left?

10? 20? 30? 40? 50?… 1?

And would you change anything if you knew the answer?

I would.

The obvious question is:

Why am I not doing that already?


Time Left


As the winter approaches and the light recedes, I may not have the aurora borealis in my backyard, but I’m grateful to have the sparkle of family life inside.



The Butler Did It.

A play about a wealthy Socialite, an act of betrayal, a tenacious Detective, and of course… a (nervous) Butler.

A Childhood Production.

Hair Dryer.

I always have a difficult time capturing her, when she’s aware of the camera.

This time, I was able to photograph surreptitiously, with the help of the Ice Light (on the table).
