The Cartier shot is especially nice!
Thank you, David!
The guy in the Cartier shot looks a tad nervous – hands in his pocket, lack of Cartier acknowledgement! “Please don’t make me go in there!” 🙂 Nice shots, Donald.
Haha. There was also something weird about the young lady turning around like that. Had nothing to do with me but it was an odd moment. And thank you!
the girl from the cartier shot really adds character to the picture, love it!
Thank you. I agree!
Just want to add an unprovoked thought here. These shots are intentionally very atmospheric. Gloomy, brooding, and not, unless I was being ironic (and I’ll never tell) in any way in consort with the subject matter or locale. But whatever. This camera and this sensor will produce black and white conversions that are also Life Magazine quality in terms of journalistically crisp and clear. And, of course, I’m having a ball playing with color looks that are all over the place. Point is, it is amazing, freeing, and altogether joyful the variety of looks that can be pulled out of this camera.
Now I’m aware that the same can be said for many cameras. But the reason I’m saying it here about the M-E (M9) is that this fact truly comes as an ongoing ultra-pleasant surprise to me. I knew you could nail a couple of great black and white looks and get lucky with some color once in a while but I’m taken aback every time I post process shots with what can be pulled out of those RAW files. It’s to the point, as I’ve said in other places on this blog, that I think that ANYONE who shoots this camera and who looks at the RAW files out of camera as the true image is just being foolish. That RAW file is a half-baked cake.
Anyway, as always, thank you for visiting.
better than celery
Well anything is better than celery. Although I loved it when I was a child.
It’s a nice accoutrement for a Bloody Mary.
You’d be a nice accoutrement for a Bloody Mary.

YES—I COULD USE SOME LIGHTENING UP.
Lovely and so fun!
Wish I could make out what is says on the dude’s shirt…lol! He sure looks guilty of something..
I had it figured out when I posted this. Let me have a look again later when I’m on my laptop.
