Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday! I love lazy Sundays…laying in bed for a while longer, enjoying the sun peeking through the blinds and even a picture or two later in the day :) Todays Daily Inspiration comes from David Schmidt who shoots with a Leica M8U (upgraded to M8.2 specs). You can see more at his smugmug page here.

I take pictures every day. For me, it’s a form of meditation. Bills, kids, stress, all wash away when I have my camera in my hands.

I really don’t try to find shots so much as letting the shot find me. Then, its like Henri Cartier-Bresson once said “Aim well, shoot fast, and scram”. Lately however, I find myself engaging more with my subjects and then capturing them for who they are. Either way, the joy of capturing a moment in time that tells a story is immensely rewarding for me.

Having been a student of photography since I was fourteen years old, starting with a Canon TL QL, and developing my own film in the basement, up to today shooting a Leica M8.u. I still find myself a student of photography.

I hope to forever be the student, as I attempt to capture the light and create an image.
