Last Few Weeks



—01. Tribute to TGF.


I just got some film back the other day and there were a couple of roll ends that got filled up with some daily scenes. All of these shots are from Vancouver - some recognizable, some less so. It's always fun getting photographs back after forgetting about them. Definitely one of the joys usually lost with the digital ways. I've been thinking of trying to get a Leica M6 to take over from my Canon F1, but until then it continues to travel with me as much as possible.

This is beautiful. I adore this blog.
What kind of Canon do you use?

Great pictures!
Question are these pictures scans of the pictures, scans of the slides, or did you get your pictures on CD? and when is Fall/winter Magazine out?

Those crepe Alden Bluchers are amazing - look very good with the RAW denim

"You have a lot to learn."

Good for him. I think any art is a process of continually learning.

Nice photographs, and a good feature for this blog to break up the product features. I like the theme of light and transparency in this set.

Ryan, keep doing what you're doing, I look forward to the daily updates...Ulysses, you are a total douche

Gentleman is no good at photography - what can I say? Sometimes the truth hurts; especially when your considering upgrading from a camera you barely know how to use, to a Leica M6.

To answer your question, you don't have to say anything. There is always that one individual that has the need to put others down in order to make themselves feel better. Cowardly and the mark of a small course of action is to simply keep your mouth shut. As the old adage states 'if you don'y have anything nice to say, don't say it at all'. This exchange ends here as this is not the forum for it. Personally, I can't stand people such as yourself, but tolerance and keeping my opinions to myself unless warranted allows me to deal with that. Your reply warranted retort.

And Ulysses has a lot to learn about tact.

Ryan, if the Leica gives you more incentive to learn photography, then go for it. The F1 seems like a fine camera though, so perhaps set the Leica as reward down the line (nothing beats an incentive to ratchet up your skills a few levels).

If you go for the M6 you can pick up a Leica 40mm Summicron f2 lens (made for the CL) really reasonable or a Minolta 40 mm f2 Rokkor. Both M mount. Voigtlander M mount lens are quality for the money to, especially the 40mm f1.4 Nokton or the 28mm Ultron f2.0.

I've seen used M6 bodies going for a little as £450 here in Manchester, UK. I got one for £650 and love it. Not sure on what you can pick up in Canada tho.

is there a term for that break away cf/hem curve? is it just an old school detail to keep the shirt from opening?
