Here it is in #136! The magic of the M9 and Noctilux…enjoy these superb street shots by Adam Goldberg…stunning!
Hi Steve —
Your contagious enthusiasm for Leica and rangefinder cameras inspired me to look at an M9. I’m currently traveling through China with an M9 / Noctilux f/0.95 combination forcing me to take my time with each exposure, carefully thinking about composition, depth of field, lighting, and the other components my 5d Mark II does automatically. I just wanted to share some of my first photos of Shanghai with this new combination. I’ve found that with the rangefinder, the reaction from subjects is completely different: I never realized how intimidating an SLR can be until seeing first hand the genuine reactions of people when presented with this camera. It’s as if the M9 is camouflage.
Not sure if any of these would be suitable for your daily inspiration, but nevertheless, here are some of my favorite shots and I hope you enjoy them as much as I had fun taking them.
