Three images here from a recent 6,980 mile road trip. Couldn’t get in those last 20 miles!

First two images are from Grand Canyon National Park, the last image somewhere along Old Route 66.

Leica M9-P with 90mm Summicron for the gear details.

Enjoy. – Chris

Google Maps shows this location as being in Newark, I’ll take it’s word for it since it was after midnight leaving NYC on Amtrak to head back to DC. Spent a great but quick 13 hours in the city of blinding lights.

Originally I was going to call this “testing the light” as that was precisely what I what doing. However since July 7th was the anniversary of the Roswell crash, this image did seem to have a rather alien appearance.

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.
