Hi I'm Martin, a amateur photographer that likes to shoot street photography, landscapes, seascapes and odd image of dogs on digital as well as film. I now have a Leica M-P (Typ-240) & my late father's 1959 Leica M3 single stoke with Summicron 50mm duel range lens, Summicron 35mm, 50mm lenses and 90mm f/2.8 tele-elmarit. My blog was formerly known as 'The 35mm Shootist'
I am pleased with this shot, it was taken from the hip while walking past this couple eating their lunch along the seafront on what was a very hot day in August. This negative had to be cropped in Gimp 2.1 to straighten the composition but that was about all this picture needed to complete the final image.
Leica M4-2, Summicron 35mm f/2 ASPH and taken on Kodak Tri-X, rated at 800.
Came across this gentlemen having a rest enjoying the day after lockdown restrictions had been eased. Nothing to special, but it made for a pleasing image and shot at Barton Point Coastal park, England.

This beautiful old bicycle can be found in Rue des Lingots, Honfleur, France. It’s parked outside a small C’afe called ‘Le Temps Des Cerises’ and if you look up online you’ll find it has been photographed many times before I believe, so this is my take on this street scene.

While walk along the sea wall this gentlemen stopped and began adjusting his bicycle. I was going to crop out the crash barrier plus the street lamp but having seen the angle of the curb stones and street markings, the diagonal lines add to this images appeal for me.
