Cross, tourists and a seagull

Thorsten Overgaard has a post on his Leica M9 best practices.  There's a lot of good tips although I don't share most of his practises.

I sold my Zeiss Planar 50mm event though it was an excellent lens. I have never seen that kind of quality in pictures shot with lens wide open. I figured one 50mm is enough. Steve Huff has a good review of it in case your interested.

Most of the pictures on my new blog so far have been taken within 2 kilometers from my home. I should go to new places because it is getting really difficult to find anything interesting to photograph on my usual routes. Here's few latest from the usual places.

There's a lot of this kind of action going on daily at the Sibelius monument.

You can't beat seagulls and windows as photographic subjects.

Here I wanted to test out the B&W mode in M9. Results are quite flat but it might be useful in some situations.

I got more pictures on my walls. This is single picture divided to three. It was originally shot with Mamiya M645 1000s which creates 6x4.5 negatives. I had to stretch it with Photoshop's content aware scaling to get three 30x40cm pictures.

  1. Those are interesting photos that you have there. You really know how to play with the settings of your camera.
