let’s try this again (3.0). My name is Witold Riedel and I am a traveling creative director who also takes pictures.

I have been taking pictures for several decades now, sometimes with more dedication, and sometimes with less.

Taking pictures is not my main daily task, thus I am only able to spend a relatively small amount of time on it.

Many of the photos here are just snapshots of strangers passing me in the street somewhere.
I shoot mostly with a Leica M9 and a Leica M Monochrom. Dependent on the day, the light, and the environment I am in, pictures are shot with different lenses.
(I shoot film too! Love it. I shoot with a Leica MP, a Konica Hexar RF, with a Leica Minilux, and even a Praktina FX from 1954. I have a Rolleiflex 2.8F and a Hasselblad 501CM. Love these cameras too, for a variety of reasons.)

I have been with Flickr since it was in beta. I originally used it as a dumping ground for photographs shot to illustrate stories on my old blog. Now I try to publish pictures with a bit more care. I do not have much time to keep up a blog.

Feel free to add me, or send me a note. I am sometimes very bad about adding people back or answering emails right away, but I try.
If you are representing a group, please do not post those gigantic blinking banners into my comments. I tend to delete them.

If you find yourself in any of my photographs and really do not want to be seen here, then please let me know. I should be able to remove your likeness very quickly.

oh, and I guess I need one of these when here:

    "Don't visit Witold's site! I've warned you. That is, unless you want to spend countless hours reading his posts or looking and his wonderful illustrations. Next thing you know, it's quitting time at work and your boss is yelling at you because you haven't done a single thing!"
