Summer Wedding with Summer sound

Seven years ago, my wife & I were at a rainbow gathering.  Ever since we met we’d try to go every year where the rainbow gathering was being held.  This year was 2006 in Colorado.  Imagine 10-20 thousand hippies camping in approximately 20-30 camp kitchens where no money was exchanged.  Everywhere you go you’d hear drumming and singing and man made music.

All I had with me was a rangefinder camera and a 50mm lens with about 4 rolls of Tri-x

Daily carry

I live in Nevada. And in this state, when you hear someone say “it’s my daily carry” they’re talking about a handgun.

When I say “it’s my daily carry” I mean my wonderful Leica M4 black paint camera. It is my humble opinion that this camera is the best Leica M camera ever made.
It is so smooth and feels so good in the hand. There is nothing like it in the digital world (to my knowledge) and probably never will be.
So here’s to you Oskar Barnak, you made a real winner here.


Shadows of Silence by John Demos


I bought this lovely book on recommendation by Eric Kim.  I had no idea who John Demos was until last week when I ordered this book.  I’m glad now that I own it.  It’s a great book of photographs taken in Greece in the 80’s and 90’s.  I highly recommend this book for your collection.
