This is the ongoing journal of my travels, photography, experience with people, places and equipment.
"Just finished you Leica M10 video and I must say, your focusing section was worth the price of the entire ensemble. I, like so many others, think we must being doing something wrong when our pics are not in focus!"
"Many thanks for the book. I am a retired pro who came through your M9 video. Gonna sell all my Nikon stuff (D3, D700, etc) and settle down for some traveling and the kind of photography that originally got me exited (IIIF, M3, etc). Obviously your site will be my companion. Many thanks for your kindness."
"What a privilege it was to spend a weekend with all of you! Thanks so much for the companionship as we continue to navigate the Leica journey we’ve embarked on and I feel like I’ve got a few new mates for life! Great tutoring by the Viking too, what a colorful life you, Joy and Robin lead - I loved immersing myself in it for a short stint. I look forward to staying in touch".
