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.
Taken on my Leica M3, Summicron 50mm f/2 and shot on Fomapan 100 @ 400 ISO using sunny sixteen.
I don’t often do still life photography and this picture has come from an album I found while sorting out my late fathers estate. In the 1950’s he was stationed with Royal Air force in Malta and during that time there he purchased a Voigtländer Vito B camera. It’s a wonderful album full of images he had taken with this camera of the island during the two years he was stationed there.
I used my late father’s Leica M3 with a Summicron 50mm f/2 duel range lens. Shot on the dinning room table using just natural light from a near by window and taken with a timed exposure of f/8 at 1 second on Fomapan 100 Classic film.
I took this image sometime last month but had not got around to using it. I had looked at this tree many times and thought there is a shot there but just couldn’t get the composition right until sun was at a low angle between the buildings opposite.

We came across this young woman carrying a eight week old puppy by the Place Claude Lelouch in Deauville, France. The pup was very young and it was somewhat nervous about his surroundings. Personally, both my wife and I felt the dog was far too young to be out and about especially as the weather was forecasted to be very warm later that day.

Wet Sunday morning and the first leaves have started to come down for autumn. This image has been chosen by my wife Helen. She didn’t like the picture looking down into a puddle at a single leaf, with the reflection of the trees behind, so this image it has to be.
Unfortunately this will be the last picture taken with my Leica for quite sometime. It has developed a problem which I think might be shutter related, so back to the repairers again.

For all you cat lovers out there… I see this cat laying on top of this shed sunning it’s self near every Sunday morning walking my dog and amusingly, Charlie my dog can’t see him.
I got the surprised look from this cat because to get the picture I had to hold the Leica up arms length, stretched out above my head!

Honfleur, outside the Alcyone caf’e. I saw this young lady standing bare foot holding her boots, so I took the shot. Now I know women like to paint their nails, but never someone standing in the street with cotton wool between her toes and then walk off like it. Even my wife raised her eyebrows!

Waiting for his master to come back, I spotted this dog in a supermarket car park in Sheerness just as the early evening sunlight caught his face. All the time I was there he cried continuously watching though the open window.

Street shot taken in Honfleur, France. I saw this elegant lady, with beret walking down towards me, I got a shot standing on some nearby steps. Having processed the image, pleased with triangular look with the three women, but I found this lady has her eyes shut. All the same I’m still happy with this picture.
