Shikoku, Japan with Leica22/02/2015

posted in General

It has been a considerable amount of time since I have written a blog post! It has been hard to find the time to keep writing blog posts, it has even been hard to find the time to go out and shoot, if I’m honest. Being in the work routine makes it very difficult, but I do take my camera out with me, especially if making a day trip somewhere.

Hello again, after much time from the last blog post! Today I am uploading photographs I took during my family holiday in the south of France, in an area called Dordogne. It’s was great to go on a family holiday again – I think it had been about 3 years since the last family holiday!

Barcelona Holiday Photographs29/08/2014

Hello and long time no see readers! It has been a long time since I have written a blog, and it’s been a while since I have been able to do any REAL photography too, if I am honest! Who knew that working life could keep you so busy!?! But I am still shooting, and still enjoying it as much as ever.  A few weeks ago I went on holiday to Barcelona with my friends and girlfriend, and had an absolutely fantastic time! Barcelona is a really great city, with so much to see and offer – I really recommend going if you want a trip to a cultural city. One of my favourite things about Barcelona was how when at the beach it feels like you are at a beach resort, having a fantastic time; and yet when you walk into the city, you feel immersed in a cultural city in the middle of the country somewhere, with no connection to a beach!

Blog Catch-Up14/06/2014

Hello everyone – it has been over a month since my last blog post and I am ashamed! I have been very busy in the last few weeks, both at work and socially, which has left me with less time to write posts for this site, but I will amend that. So this is actually only a quick post to show that I haven’t stopped taking photographs, and that I am still alive! In the last few weeks I have been on a couple of trips to London, been back to Cheltenham, I’ve been to Stratford Upon Avon, and even been to a wedding, so I will take this opportunity to share a few of the photographs from those trips.

Upgrading the Leica M6 Viewfinder03/05/2014

posted in Gear, Guides

A lot of people with Leica M6s consider at some point upgrading the viewfinder from the one Leica used at the time, to the new one that they have on the MP. There is a lot of debate about whether it is worth it, arguments on the forums and whatnot, but more information is always useful to anyone who has one and is wondering if it is worth it. I have had mine upgraded recently, and thought it would be good to share my experience and thoughts about it.
