Hi All...just signed up (like I need yet another photo forum!) but this one (and the associated articles and blog) looks great and as I'm a relative newcomer to Leica** and rangefinder photography I'm here to learn and share a little.
Retired urologic surgeon, SLR user for many years. Really intrigued with the special 'look' of Leica images (something magical about the whites and the ambient contrast) and especially avoiding the schlepping of boat anchors around with me.
Living in central Pennsylvania and enjoy all genres of photography, especially b/w, landscape, nature & macro and people.
Looking forward to seeing your images and reading what you have to say.
**special thanks to Bill Allsopp for giving me the Leica bug and a fulminant case of G.A.S (gear acquisition syndrome) along with it.
Hi, Mark! Welcome to the newest and friendliest little Leica world! Glad to get to know ya! Looking forward to more of your posts and photos!
