leica year

Mask stall for New Year’s Festival, Yukinoshita, Kamakura, Jan 2017
from Something Here

I just shoot a first street photo of the new year. yup it’s tooo late start but this one is good start I think.




Leica MP with 28mm f2.8 Elmarit-M Aspherical lens

Leica M4 with 35mm f1.4 Summilux lens

Photographer: Dave Hendley

A high point of every year is when my friend Dave visits Tokyo from London- this past trip I took him on what I call a “photowalk” but what Colin, who also was with us, calls a “deathwalk”-  20 kilometers all over East Tokyo in an afternoon is certainly a long day but it’s a good kind of tired at the end. We all shot a bunch, but just wandering around looking is fine as well. Photography gets us all out of the house and into the real world. 

Dave runs three tumblrs I recommend following: CSM Camera Style,  rm409,  and one of his excellent personal work from over the years: davehendley.tumblr.com

The End

And with that, we’ve reached the end of my Leica Year. It’s been a blast (and I’ve continued shooting mostly black and white film with my M6), but it’s time for a brief hiatus. I’m back in India to take care of a few things and will be using the time to decompress from the Internet in general.

See you when I get back.
