"Brilliant and helpful article, Negative or haters who hold you back!!

Also enjoyed and found very useful your writing on how you use your Leica m240. It is my very first Leica and I enjoy it as I learn everyday while constantly training my eye! Thanks again for your inspiration Thorsten."

Santa Fe

Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, January 1 - 5, 2015

The first time for me in Santa Fe. I try to explore some new places every year, and this year Santa Fe will be one of them.

I can't recall to have seen any other place on Earth where the buildings and natiure align so much. We joked that the local paint store only have to have one color in stock, but it really looks great.

We arrived in Austin, Texas while it was still daylight where we have rented a great house with a Japanese garden. We had been recommended the 24 hour diner Magnolia as a great place to have food, so we headed there.

I first visited it when I purchased a Leica X1 and was looking for inspiration. You website proved invaluable. Eventhough you focus on the M9 I found that many of your advice really helped me to use the X1 to its' fullest capacity.

In the process I fell in love with the M9. "
