I'm Martin, a amateur photographer from England that likes to shoot street photography, landscapes, seascapes and odd image of dogs on digital as well as film. I use a Leica M-P (Typ-240) with a Summilux 50mm f/1.4 ASPH lens and a 1959 Leica M3 single stoke with Summicron 50mm duel range lens. My blog was formerly known as 'The 35mm Shootist'
I took this picture of a father and sons collecting their crab pots from the receding tide. This was two days ago on a cloudy, very dull looking the morning giving a almost winter feel to this image but later on Sundays weather would turn out fine and bright day. Shot wide open at f/1.4 with the Summilux 50mm lens once the picture is enlarged, the detail in the middle of this image I’m really impressed with.

Cropped top and bottom, it almost to me gives the image a look of being taken with a wide angle lens but without the distortion. Here’s the original image below before post processing.
Minster on Sea, England. September 2021
Leica M-P (Typ 240) with the Summilux 50mm f/1.4 ASPH lens, using a B+W Neutral Density 2 Stop filter and digital yellow filter.
A view over to Ridham Dock from the Kingsferry Bridge, Swale estuary.
I cropped the sky down because as I completely forgot about the power cables hanging across the Swale to the Isle of Sheppey, very unsightly and unforgivable by me! My excuse is the Zorki viewfinder isn’t the best to see though into in bright sunlight. Despite this I think the crop it makes for a good image for me and to share with all of you.
Taken mid morning on a Zorki 4K with Jupiter 8 50mm f/2 with Fomapan 400 Action film and developed in Kodak D76 for 5 minutes at 23ºc.
