This was the first year of my life that I documented more with my photography than with my writing, especially if that whole picture = 1,000 words equation is true. Here are some of the things I saw in 2010, arranged, more or less, chronologically. For those of you who are curious about gear, I took most of the shots with a Leica M7, Leica M8, or Panasonic GF1. And I’m still waiting for my roll of Kodakchrome to be processed.
I’m in the process of selling someone else’s 50mm Leica Summicron-R lens. However, I first decided to test it out on my Panasonic GF1. (I personally own a copy of this lens, but having another to sell inspired me to try it on the digital body.) It’s a 100mm equivalent on the 2x crop of the micro four thirds sensor, but it still renders colors and bokeh as a Leica lens should.
