While walking to the gallery I paid a little tribute. Shot and moved on.

“And the piano sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say “Man what are you doing here?” – Billy Joel

Getting a bit behind posting with a lot of work related travel lately. I like this side of the stage the best. Very similar to photography, you must keep the beat going for everything to fall in line.

Thunderstorms rolled in bringing Reagan National departures to a stand still for nearly two hours last week. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many departure planes parked so close together and not at a gate before. I could hear Fred Thompson say “stack ’em, pack ’em and rack ’em”! – from Die Hard II.

I left out the “e” in Monochrome on purpose this week since this image was created using the Leica Monochrom M rangefinder camera on loan from Leica during the Leica Akademie Monochrom workshop last week at the Leica Store DC. Yes that’s a lot of Leica in one sentence! Tom A. Smith of Leica and photographer Quinton Gordon lead the workshop.

I’m usually a 35mm or 50mm lens user so I challenged myself by using a 75mm lens on the Monochrom for the day. Focusing through a smaller viewfinder window is a challenge in itself not to mention photographing at a wide open aperture with a telephoto lens. I came across this guitar player performing downtown and experimented with different focusing points from his hands,face and guitar strings.

 A brief stop at Valley Forge National Park before heading to a photography session in NYC. This is the National Memorial Arch at Valley Forge. Trying out a 21mm 1.8 lens on the Leica and thought the Arch’s lines would be a great subject to test distortion.
