concert shots

I'm continuing to explore and learn my Leica at every possible opportunity. Last week it was at granddaughter, Anna's, school concert. I'm having fun comparing color with B&W. Take a look at the last two photos -- which do you prefer? All shots were taken with the M9 & Voigtlander's f/1.8 75mm lens wide open.

What do you want to be?

You can become a master of your craft, or you can 'just wanna take pics'... either is fine. Just don't confuse them as being the same.

Thou shalt not ...

Thou shalt not purchase gear for which thou hast no specific application.
Read a great essay about this.

the quality of photography

Isn't it amazing how photography has advanced without improving?
