Congratulations to Mike Villa and his wonderful article in Steve Huff’s blog, “Going on World Tour with Leica, Voigtlander & Nikon”. I have been on Mike’s website and learned about the work he does with “Life without Limbs” which is discussed in this article. Plus we see more of his photos with his his Leica M9.



Those images are amazing (as is the story). I've posted a direct link to them here for those who are interested....

Jud - interesting bike in #1, looks difficult to handle while holding a dog

Yeah some interesting sights in New Orleans rsolti13 - first visit for me but I'm hoping to go back again in a month or so. Trying to put together a small portfolio of street photos before the end of the year - personal challenge for 2013 - and it is a great city for that sort of photography.

Mike Villa - thought your Steve Huff blog photos were incredible!

EVERY single shot on this page is gorgeous. Seriously. And even more so now that I have a new monitor! Also, upgraded to LR5 and think I'm going to love the new filter option!

Agree, Mike, you moved the stage here. You have the ability to capture the atmosphere which illustrated both here Leica thread and f1.2 thread.

Michael - great post! The one in the water is just awesome. The 35 Cron I you have, is it the goggled version? How is it on the M9? A pain, or is it just like any other lens? Minimum distance .7?

I have the 35 Summaron which from what I have been able to tell is very similar in rendering....just f/2.8 instead of f/2. It may be my favorite rendering lens I have, just would like to have f/2 for the times its needed


Thanks Ryan, appreciate.

My version is goggled one, which I like a lot since it is bring up 50mm frame line. As mentioned, Rangefinder for me is a crop tool to crop the world, without seeing out side of frame, how? The goggle will reduce the contrast of VF and has some distortion, but doesn't affect me much. It focus down to about 0.6M or so.

Again, my personal view on both 35cron 8 element and 50cron Rigid are the same, I use them not for their rendering,(Which I don't feel they are very special on Bokeh, I may fail double blind test to spot them that I never will on 50lux ASPH, or 35lux R. * 35cron do have round Bokeh highlight all the way to extreme corner suggest its excellent coma performance.) but they reliably bring me good results at all aperture. they build like a jewel, handle with charm even after all these 50 years. Leica gained my respect from there more than now

I have the opportunity to visit the Sebastião Salgado: GENESIS exhibition yesterday at the Royal Ontario Museum (exhibition ends this weekend). I enjoyed the exhibition, but had some fun myself with the gallery and my M9 with the Summilux 50 ASPH

Next to the Salgado Exhibition was the Patricia Harris Gallery of Textiles & Costume ...very dim lighting, but I think these were interesting.

The hallways and staircase of the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal give some nice photographic opportunities playing with colours, light and angles..

I was agonizing in my last couple of posts above about developing a concept for the B&W series that I want to photograph while in Paris for the next five weeks. Finally decided on the concept. The trouble is that is a literary one related to a French book that I'm reading and I haven't yet worked out how it will be translated graphically, which means that I don't yet know whether any of the pictures below will work for what I have in mind.

These are taken with the M-Monochrom and the Summilux-50 pre-ASPH:

No. 2 | ISO 1250

No. 3 | ISO 1250

Mikethevilla – enjoyed your use of the Voigtlander 21 1.8 Ultron

Mike – Another shout out for the 1.4 portrait.

Cal – I love museum images and enjoyed your Sebastião Salgado photos. The Chinese cloth is lovely. I tell my friends that this is a good way to learn photography without flash.

Mitch – No. 4 of your Paris series is what I imagine a Parisian café to be on a weekend afternoon.

I received my 24mm Elmar and have enjoyed the Leica color, sharpness and contrast. I have been shooting too far away, get closer.

A few taken with the 24mm and the 50 lux.

Thanks for the love folks! Sorry I don't have more time to go through and share my thoughts on your images (I promise I'll be better at returning the love when I get back from tour).

Here's the take from today:





M9 + CV 35 1.2 Nokton.







M9 + CV 35 1.2 Nokton.







M9 + CV 21 1.8 Ultron.







M9 + CV 21 1.8 Ultron.







And a cameo from yours truly, being informed this snake is indeed poisonous (M9+35 1.2)

Mitch - wonderful tones in the Paris series. Makes me thing the MM is something special after all...
Salvaz - congrats on the new lens! Looking good!
Mike - those are crazy awesome. Why oh why would you even consider holding those nasty snakes? Sheesh! I also THANK YOU for taking the time to post here while out on the road. Your work is an inspiration and I don't know how you even find the time...

Just a shot from the CV 50 1.5 that I reworked in LR5 on my new monitor. Nothing great...

Charles, salvaz, Katie, rsolti13 — thanks for the kind words. Continuing with the same M-Monovchrom/Summilux-50 pre-ASPH series (all at ISO 1250), and trying, mostly, for a more fluid, looser style and for some feeling of real darkness in some of the shots.
