My “Open Letter to Leica” … 325 signatures, so far.

I’d to like see an updated CCD sensor in future Leica M because I believe CCD is superior to CMOS with respect to image rendition at base ISO.

Do you agree?

Please consider signing my Open Letter to Leica.


(Edit: 339 signatures so far… )

The Runner (prelude to Santa).

This race took place yesterday in Toronto, before the Santa Claus Parade.

He won by a large margin.

It was quite the day… many smiles and snowflakes.

Birthday Giggles… oh no!

Last year, she messed-up on blowing out the only candle on her cake, and then burst into an uncontrollable fit of laughter.

This year, there were 10 candles, so… no pressure :)

Here she is during one of her many attempts.

(The giggles…oh those giggles)

Her friends resumed eating.

It went on for a while.

It started snowing here last week.  It’ll be a long time before we get back to this…

Congratulations Mark!

Some well-deserved recognition for a friend of this site, and my friend-in-real-life, Mark for receiving the Mark of Excellence in the “I Shot It” Child Photo Competition for his hauntingly beautiful photograph Cross-Country.

Congratulations Mark!

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.
