hoho, 4 days left

Four days left till christmas. My anxiousmetern is reaching daily-tops – good times. Still haven’t got presents, still don’t know what to get. I think, I’m going for some fiber prints and enjoy the disappointed faces – “why did you crop the head”. Classic.

Anyhuuu… things aren’t too cool (not even the weather) because I got myself a Voigtländer Ulton 28/1,9. The glass is pretty amazing, built-quality is very nice, so is the contrast and sharpness. BUT there is of course a butt – and surprise, surprise, it’s the focus. Which is off. Did you expect anything else? I didn’t. And here comes the kicker: Instead of front-focussing like all of the Leica-glass I tried, this one is back-focussing. Very lovely. So I won’t have any Leica gear for the holidays. Good times. Enough of ranting, just felt like telling a funny story. And for some reasons I like funny stories.

Some prinzen:

Genders? Who needs genders?

Decisive moment.

061220_schock.jpg
Schock.

Drunk. 20 mm, Canonlight D – the other print is put on the bar’s wall.

Sunshine face.

Markus. Class for kids that have “problems with learning”. However, they all suffer from psychological problems. I have a few more to print. Going to do so this afternoon. Or not. Who knows?

Only few things are as nice as some decent backfocus. This was my M6 (still adjusted for my “weird” 35 mm) with Severin’s Leica 35/2 Summicron. Nice very.

Voigtländer. Over-exposed. Nice. Backfocus. Nice very.

Might be one of my christmas presents. Now this is going to be disappointing for family members. No cute kid-shot but some escalator. Tempting.

Incase, I won’t post any blog entry before christmas (or chanukha for Sir Khavinksy) have a nice very +fav time. Enjoy.

And here is my personal christmas gift for you:

I was having an inspiriational moment listening to some Aguilara song. Hope you like it. :heart:

And for all those guys who have a flawlessly working camera system: Die.

    Chris would kill me if he found I was cheating on him, but I think you might have an edge on him photographically speaking ;)
