We photographers are an odd bunch. When the weather is bad, we decide to leave our dwellings and go out in search of photos. Last week, after hiding in my cave for over a week, a rainy day allowed me to put the underused Leica M10 Monochrome to work. It was a chance for me … Continue reading A rainy day (photo) walk

I also sometimes share links to the work of other photographers, articles worth reading, and soon short chats with fellow photographers whose work I admire.
I hope you can join me on my journey and sign-up for this occasional newsletter.
