A Rough Start To The Weekend

Well. It’s the weekend. Can’t be that bad right? Well… It can be. Not only am I suffering through a pretty crappy cold right now, but this morning the focusing mechanism on my Leica M (262) just died. Yes you heard that right. When turning the barrel of the lens, you’d hear a slight click, at which point you would physically see the focusing patch shutter. When this first happened it scared the living daylights out of me. Luckily I

Nikon F100

I had a Nikon F100 about three years ago. I loved it. Shot with it. And finally sold it, as it was cumbersome to shoot with on the street. Jump forward three years and I regret ever selling it.

The Leica Travelogues: Update

I wanted to give an update as to where “The Leica Travelogues” are going. I also have been struggling with gear and the general quality of the episodes I’ve produced. The audio has sounded quiet, muffled and “amateur” in my opinion. The Blue Yeti, which I use, may be a good microphone for some applications but it just isn’t a good mic for me.
