Note: This site is about pictures taken with a camera! No philosophy - no political point of view - no messages intended.Just traditional photography; view them for a few seconds at the most, then go on to the next one..,On the other hand, if you want to see museum suitable photos, click this link.(See me on Facebook)I love photography and in the links showing below you can look at my efforts. When I got started in early 1965,I used a Zeiss Ikon Contaflex Super B with all of the available Protessar Lenses from that company until Zeiss gave up making those cameras. I then switched to Nikon using the Nikon F3 and FA. I had accumulated quite a few Nikkor lenses but put them in storage when photography essentially changed from film to digital. I also gave up any darkroom work because it became too cumbersome to get the paper and chemicals. At last Nikon came up with a camera that was affordable and able to take my old lenses. That was the D7000. Most of my lenses are manual lenses, without autofocus, etc. and many of the pictures on my webpages are taken with these older lenses. The latest addition to my cameras is the Nikon D800e, for having an FX sensor rather than DX..Last year (2012) I obtained a Leica M9-P and a few Zeiss lenses, that are specifically made for Leicas. But I also own a few Leica lenses. These lenses are super sharp and with rare exceptions, are much better than anything produced in the Nikkor or Canon lens line up. With the Leica most work is done manually. Thus, it requires a different approach to taking pictures: Taking time to do it right...Thanks for visiting my site and for all comments! I bid all of you GOOD LIGHT!
