Grand Opening: M Salon – Rodeo Drive

Just showcasing some early days Leica M9 event photography I did with the truly can’t miss Leica 35mm 2.5 Summarit, the only lens I could afford to mount on Leica’s $7000 full-frame digital M at the time I bought it. (Did I say the word ‘Leica’ enough in that sentence?)

The M Salon is a fantastic palace of beautification in the Rodeo Collection in Beverly Hills.

Couldn’t resist using them here with a name like M Salon! Seemed highly appropriate if not naked pandering and click-baiting.

Actually I plan on using in the future as a place to publicize similar such events around L.A.’s trendy and beautiful westside and to showcase the images I make at these events with Leica cameras and lenses, especially, you guessed it, the incredible 50mm 1.4 Summilux-M ASPH.

But hey, come on. Look at that opening image here in this post. Do you believe that was made with a 35mm lens? And the ‘lowly’, ahem, 35mm 2.5 Summarit?

Enjoy the images and Flickr slideshow of all the pictures taken with the M9 and a Nikon D3 with the 85mm 1.4 Nikkor D!
