  1. Welcome everyone to Week 32 of 2022, the Leica and Rangefinders W/NW Thread! Here’s a scene from my archives on October 2012 of the front of Longshan Temple, Taipei.

  2. I like it. And I even enjoy the Summitar flare. Great comparison between the temple and the stark background grey buildings.

  3. Thank you Christopher. The Summitar, despite its age definitely has its unique character! And yes, to see the temple in contrast to its surroundings forces a balance between old and new; to me was akin to seeing the Alamo for the first time in downtown San Antonio.
  4. Yesterday morning I dusted off my old Tele-Elmar 135 and went for a walk.

  5. That third shot. I like the line thru her jaw. Thru glass? With reflections? Her face is radiant. Bright and lively. Literally, adventurously enticing. That is a good shot - captured something there, you did. Bravo. Regards, Arthur (apiarist1)
  6. So, I'm still holed up nurturing a damaged arm - so much for low speed motorcycle riding. To make things worse, the rain has returned, and the cancelled 'Wingham Scottish Festival' has been re-cancelled again - the ground is so sodden that insurance has been a problem, and the resurgence of covid and its post omicron variant is ripping thru our community. So it's leftovers, a shot another photo.jpg posted before.


    That's it. Luis Triguez's second shot was brilliant. And what in God's name would I give for Bill Blackwells' control of the image. Keep safe. Regards, Arthur (apiarist1)
  7. Lake on the Campus
    Leica M3 Summicron 5cm
  8. Just a few flowers from me.

    Leica x113

  9. Thanks Arthur, yes there is reflections off the glass window. She did have an enticing smile.
