Baseball Team Tryouts (Scenes 1 – 4).

On a beautiful and sunny spring afternoon.  Today.

Window Light Portrait (Film).

This is a second test shot with the Leica 35/2 v1 (8 element), this time on the M3.

Please forgive the repetitive nature of these test images, but it is important for me to observe the behaviour of different equipment under similar circumstances.

On a related note, I’ve pretty much decided to abandon film (again)… there are more and more obstacles making it difficult for me to continue working with it.

Hold on (to this feeling).

And four years ago:

Recognize this moment.

Test Image: Leica 35mm Summicron, Version 1 (8 Element).

Another window light portrait, in front of my “famous” window.


Test Image Leica 35mm Summicron 8 element

…this time I offer a twist on an old theme:  this image was taken with a recently acquired (and adjusted, in Japan) Leica 35mm Summicron (8 element) lens, otherwise known as Version 1 of the legendary 35mm Summicron.  My lens was made in Germany in the early 60s.  It’s an example of the relatively less common screw mount (LTM) version, but mine was subsequently converted to M mount by Leica.

The lens arrived today.  I mounted it on my Leica M9P and fired off the above “test” shot, wide open at f/2.

Here’s what the lens looks like:

Prosophos 8 Elements

It’s tiny, light, and another jewel in the Leica crown.


Easter Honey Bunny.

Daylight conditions: dark and cloudy.

Human (and dog) conditions: bright and sunny.

Back by semi-popular demand…

I’ve re-instated the gear categories beside each post.

Don’t say I never gave you anything for Easter.



Happy 4th Birthday to this site.

4 years Prosophos

Today, this site turns four.

1,563 posts later, I’ve learned a few things.

Too bad I’ve forgotten them all.
