View of The Brooklyn Bridge From Dumbo:
I hope everyone is having a great summer. Sorry for the lack of posts. What was only suppose to be a two week fishing trip ended up being extended a lot longer. I also know that a few of you left me comments and sent me emails. I’m sorry for the late replies! I’m back now, and I will be posting again. I have some cool Fuji stuff coming soon, and I might throw some Leica in the mix since I want to expand that section of my blog. But for now, I just wanted to post something quick to get the ball rolling again. I figure a great way to start off is a pic of lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge.
I took this shot in Dumbo. It was actually a pretty muggy day. While I like walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, I rarely do so now because it gets very crowded. I had my M 240 and my old 35mm Summicron Version 4 with me. I’ve been shooting with a lot of my older lenses lately. I prefer the modern Leica lenses in general but a lens like the Summicron Version 4 is so compact; it’s a great lens to carry on those hot summer days. Nowadays, I use the ASPH version more because I prefer it optically but the older one is still no slouch; someone recently requested a 20×30 print of the photo in this post, and I have to say, for a lens that is decades old, it still performs brilliantly.
Anyway, I appreciate you all stopping by. Take care!
