The Prince of Snow.

Taken yesterday, after I decided we should break out of the prison that is Winter.


The Prince of Snow

Trapped inside.


The prison in my mind, realized outside.

At about this time of year my thoughts turn towards throwing my equipment out the window.

The iGeneration (re-worked filmic look).

Thinking out-loud/on-line, and sharing one of my edits.

Generally speaking, I dislike making digital look like film.  If that was my goal, I’d just shoot film.

However, in light of the comment(s) that followed the first version of this image, I’m curious to know how this version is received.  In addition to not-so-subtly adding grain, I subtly played with the contrast (both local and global).  The end result is less perfect, but possibly more aesthetically pleasing.

You tell me.

Hello Leica! …500 calling you for CCD.

500 Signatures for CCD Open Letter to Leica

Hello Leica,

500 passionate photographers, enthusiasts, and artists are calling you for an updated CCD sensor in a future Leica M camera.  

We hope you are listening!

(If you haven’t already done so, please read and sign My Open Letter to Leica.)



Just your typical Sunday afternoon in Toronto (in February).

This shot required the removal of my gloves… and I paid for it (I was not made for Canadian winters).

But it was worth it.



Now is the winter of our content.

With apologies to Shakespeare.


Now is the winter of our content

So a funny thing happened to me…

… when I started a thread about  My Open Letter to Leica in the Leica User Forum.

And yes, I violated Rule #8 of My Photography Truths again.

On a related note, let’s re-visit this previous post (just for fun).


Sweet Honey.

I’m slowly refining my processing of Sigma Merrill files.

400 photographers agree: we love CCD!

400 Signatures Letter to Leica copy


The world’s longest-running (and most intense)  Open Letter to Leica has reached a milestone:

400 signatures!

It’s true, 400 photographers, enthusiasts, and artists agree:  we love CCD!

Specifically, we believe that the CCD sensor — at base ISO — offers superior image quality.

We also believe that an updated CCD sensor in a future Leica M camera would be in keeping with Leica‘s philosophy of providing out-of-the-mainstream elegant yet powerful photographic tools for discerning photographers.

So help keep the pursuit of high image quality alive by allowing CCD to develop and thrive.

Keep the momentum going!  Encourage others to PLEASE SIGN THIS LETTER.


The performance (where’s C?).

Spot her if you can :)
