My year in photos: 2010

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.

The Leica character

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.

Frances, the best new restaurant in San Francisco

A couple weeks ago, I went to Frances for Lori’s birthday dinner. And yes, it is the best new place in town. I took these images with the Panasonic GF1 and the 20mm Pancake Lens.
