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'
Another very warm day in Honfleur. While the children were been boarded onto the vintage carousel, I was watching the parents reactions though my Leica. I love the way this man is watching and waiting for proceedings to start, arm over his head, wearing the ubiquitous face mask under his chin.
Leica M4-2, Summicron 35mm f/2 ASPH and taken on Kodak Tri-X, rated at 800.
Loose Valley, Cave Hill Mill Pond, Maidstone. Father and his young children trying to feed the ducks last autumn. I was taken by the reflection and the light though the trees, made for a wonderful moment composed, the only fly in the ointment is the little girls hat which try as I might on a computer at lease I just could not get the detail to burn in. Might a different story in a darkroom!
Taken on my Leica M4-2, Summicron 50mm f/2, with a yellow B&W filter and shot on Kodak Tri-X film rated at ISO 800.
