Ron - great to see you again! That first shot is pretty awesome. Was that person stationary or moving through that area? Great capture regardless!
Joe - that train show would be a lot of fun. Especially with the kids. Could also be a good opportunity to try a tilt/shift lens?

Thanks Allen & guys!

I liked this angle from the 'back' side of the Lincoln Memorial, particularly the shape of the tree at the left side:







And a few from the Jefferson Memorial:

















All with the 50 Lux ASPH & M9

Spent too much time at the Lincoln and wandering around. By the time I figured out where to park for the Jefferson, the sun had almost set. Wish I'd gotten there at least 10 minutes earlier in order to play more with the light and colors...

No, not defecting to Sony, though the RX1 is very, very tempting. Rather, have just been busy with other things. One of which was some reorganization and remodeling at home. There is a pressing need to find storage efficiencies! I've also suddenly become very interested in the creative possibilities of do-it-yourself LED light installations. Anyway, all the better to find long lost junk. Seems to happen once every 10 years or so. Also kind of depressing to see the mountains of negatives I'd still like to digitize...

Joe - love the train images and I'd be all over that kind of show, if only for reminiscing. Coincidentally, while reorganizing, I came across my two most favourite magazines of my grade school period: "Railroads you can model" and "Scenery for Model Railroads." These were the sources of countless hours spent daydreaming as I put together my railroad sets. Starting at around age 7, I must have driven the staff of the hobby shop down the street from home nuts with my constant after school visits to ogle the various engines, cars, etc... I started out with HO but then decided on N scale because I could fit a much more elaborate track plan onto a 4x8 sheet of particle board. The train interest continued through middle school, but by this time photography was competing for my attention and pretty much took priority by the time I was in high school, though during that time I still built a lot of model kits (primarily WWII era)... A grade school friend's father had a nice HO set in the basement, which was where most of my HO collection ended up. His grandfather built amazing working scale model steam engines from scratch. These things were huge - 3-4 feet long...

I haven't built a model kit, or something similar in probably almost 20 years now... but the recent tinkering around home is kind of rekindling that interest. I'm not sure, but maybe photography is becoming too much 'work' and is no longer enough of a hobby, though I still love it. I have to admit, the last few months have been somewhat of a dry spell in terms of motivation to step out the door and do personal work. Maybe I need a different hobby for some variety?

Sorry to hear about the banding. I guess it doesn't happen all the time? That would be annoying and unfortunately seems too reminiscent of the M9...

I've noticed M 240s are more easily found now... still debating whether to try one for weddings this year.

Gary, sorry, missed your post: Great work with the 21 SEM. For the a7R vs. M9 shootout, I got to try the ZM25 for the first time, and was very impressed with it. I'm not sure I really *need* another lens, especially considering it's a 'long' 25mm, therefore being pretty close to 28mm... but will certainly keep an eye out for one at a good price. I would probably find it more useful than keeping my ZM21/2.8, which currently gets use only when doing these shootouts.

The shadow and the shadowy guys in that series were all part of a small group doing a photo shoot around the back side of the memorial where almost no one seems to venture. Two of them were possibly politicians, or of that sort... They tended to stay put so I could play with some options. Most tourist climb the steps to see Lincoln, grab a few selfies or with friends, then head back down. I ended up exploring around the back side for maybe an hour and these guys were there most of the time.

I posted this one before:







21 SEM cropped somewhat. Here's the photographer being asked to grab a group shot with someone's iPad. The things you do to keep clients happy...







And another spot:







One of the few tourists to venture around back:







50 Lux ASPH

Brian, you do the coolest conversions! Glad to see you here on FM.

Leica Akademie workshop this weekend in Los Angeles. While they had the full M System catalog available for loan, I shot everything with my M Monochrom and 1937 Carl Zeiss Jena 5cm f/1.5 Sonnar and Leica 24mm f/3.8 Elmar-M ASPH.

Here are my best six images from the Leica workshop this weekend. The first three are based on the theme "Diffuse", the second three "Portrait"

Thanks all for the comments and likes

Gary, those 21SEM shots are excellent, especially the first one.
Ron, great lighting on that second set. These reminds me of another set of columns you shot with your ZM lenses in Germany many ions back. The ipad shot is superb, love it!
Phil, 6x6 format shot looking good. How do you like the 35Cron so far?
asiafish, excellent set, the portrait theme shots are great.

Joe, I don't have a M9 yet , nice train shots, no dust on them , still need to work on my color PP

I had the banding happen to me also just once and it never replicated again, I might have had a cheaper sd card inserted FWIW
Phil

Phil, there are pros out there who can weather these "toy" trains for you, actually quite realistic I put "toy" in inverted commas because these model trains can turn out to be a very obsessive hobby and cost as much as a medium format digital setup

I've seen banding when shooting at high ISOs (=>ISO3200) but that was only noticeable at pp stage. This is the first time I see a line across the rear LCD. I took a few more shots this morning but could not replicate it (yet).

you beat with with that combo and a nice shot! I paid KEH $40 for my OM 50 1.8, not too bad. I better start picking up some Canon FD lenses before the rest of the Sony A7/R shooters buy them all up..

Just buy it I still have mine, no plans to sell. IQ is great but its still too fiddly for me and battery life sucks. If only it had manual focus hard stops, I could seriously use it as an alternative to Leica M for 35mm. I do use AF face tracking and stabilized movie mode for some family pics though.

Photography related LED lights or X'mas decorative lights?

Ah, finally a train buff and a nice story Actually, I would have though every other Leica shooter on this thread would be onto modelling trains, so many similarities - craftsmanship, history, hand finished, beautiful, childhood memories, and not forgetting model trains can also drain out the retirement funds akin to photography gear..

Ron, I'm sure you know, the hobby is changing. H0 is still the most popular and I'm sure you have heard of DCC trains and controls? All you need is two hardwires to power up the track (aux power for accessories still required) but with this, you can control boatloads of trains and even program delays and track sequencing. Plus the train sounds and LED lighting add another dimension to the hobby.. might be a good time to clear some space in the basement now?

I got my first electric train set when I was probably 6-7 years old. It was modeled after a British diesel passenger train set. The locomotive and transformer has since gone missing but I still have the passenger coaches. Still brings back lots of great memories.

Buy! Have you tried one? I find the faster buffer and weather sealing alone worth it for pro/assignment work.

Gary, its no secret that most dads bring their kids there as an excuse for themselves to go This show was quite large, over 8 acres of floor space spread out over 4 large buildings. They also have lots of activities to keep the children entertained while the dad's go look for toys on their own I didn't try tilt lenses, especially with moving trains, I was shooting at quite fast apertures.

A few more with Monoc & CV 35 1.4 SC

Shot these and a few more in 10 minutes, a detour in what I thought was a boring location to let out the dogs in the last light, after dropping my daughter at the airport.

all with the CV 35 skopar, which handles so nice on the m9

That package is actually lighter by at least 30 grams than my A7 and the CV 35/1.4, which is the smallest good 35 (possibly excepting the native) you can put on there. Skopar smears on the A7.
