On the lookout

Blogged in The Woodwork: The crack-cocaine of the Leica World.


On the lookout

Chinatown, San Francisco, California


Leica M8, Cosina-Voigtländer NOKTON 35mm F1.2 Aspherical

Aperture (exposure) Kubota Image Tools (vignette, hawaiian punch)

1/3000sec, iso 160, 35mm (47mm)



A trip to the bank machine for me is an opportunity to see the city: Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach, Chinatown, and the Financial District.


When I was a kid, this is how I saw the world.


What's the point in having an f/1.2 lens if you don’t shoot it wide open…even during the day? The image was overexposed by a lot, but the dynamic range at the lowest ISO setting is simply amazing. :-D
