Photo by myself in lower Manhattan.
Yes, it's Monday again. How on earth does that happen?
Apologies for the lack of a Halloween photo. I didn't have anything 1/2way decent that represented both the holiday and NYC. With luck, I'll snap something on Monday. Crossing fingers!
In the meantime, I am excited about my newest toy. Mark bought me a Leica Dlux 5 for my birthday after much, much waffling on my part.
Me: No, I don't need anything. The economy is terrible. I can make do with this scratched lens.
What was I thinking???!
Everything about this camera is simple and beautiful, including the packaging. This one sports the optional grip.
I've only tried a few shots with it, since we had terrible weather and I couldn't figure out all the buttons. Already I am seduced by the results. The Leica seems like a great alternative to a big SLR.
Normally, I am against animal testing ;-) My willing victim stood patiently, his eyes locked on a small rubber ball. He wore a maniacal grin.
Of course, a nice camera is nice, but if you're not putting in the time to take photos, a nice camera will not get you anywhere.
