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.

It’s no secret I love aircraft. US Airways CRJ200 and sunset.

Lucky enough to get the chance to photograph a crop duster in Belzoni, Mississippi while heading to the Jackson MS Airport. The weather was not looking good so I was surprised to see some out. I just love the sound of their engines, the high pitch hum right before they come into view above the tree tops.

At least one of these two prints have been chosen to be displayed at the “DC As I See It” Exhibit at the Leica Store in Washington DC. The gallery opening is March 30th from 7pm-9pm. Stop by if you’re in the DC area! Exhibit runs through April. Can’t wait to see the gallery myself, for sure to have many talented DC photographer’s images on display!

Technical details – Both images created in DC with the Leica M9 using 35mm (people fishing) and 135mm (VH-60 helicopter) lenses. Processed in Adobe Lightroom adding my own custom monochrome preset. Both photographs printed on Epson Exhibition Fiber paper using an Epson Printer.

Ok so it’s Wednesday and Monochrome Monday is a bit late, I apologize. I found it odd that old abandoned house would have two pianos inside but then again I’ve since plenty of other oddities.

Technical Details : Leica M9 with 21mm handheld on missing floorboards, processed in Adobe Lightroom with custom B&W preset

Missing a bit of the Mississippi Delta today so I thought I would post some images that were created during the first Rebirth Workshop – man did that seem ages ago! Looking forward to what’s next for Rebirth. As our friend Jim would say, Onward!

Another Monday.  This one is with my iHolga(iPhone) but I had every intention of going back to create the image again with my “real” camera. This is one of those time I wished I had done it when I said I would since the park is now under renovation for the next few months and the sculpture is blocked off.

A visit to the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC. Love the architecture in this building, lines are fascinating to me.
