Travels with my Q – India in shades

Travel photography in India October 2018 with my Leica Q. Converted to mono using Silver Efex Pro 2 (through Photoshop with initial developing in DxO PhotoLab 2). Some cropping because it helps to tell the story. All shooting in RAW. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, but… IMHO the …

Dirty, dusty, crowded, noisy, smelly, confronting, chaotic and challenging! But what an experience! In previous overseas trips I had my (at …

Travelling through the country in October 2018 we met the people, admired their places and experienced their culture (to a point). Chili is the national dish. Hot! We didn’t go that far experiencing Bhutanese food – restaurants …

Around the Streets in Sydney CBD

Christmas trip to Sydney with my Leica Q. Retail therapy. Sort of street photography but with a retail theme. The Q fits perfectly in my hand and is quiet. Also doesn’t look too serious so easier to just snap and go.

Black and White in Colour

I have been enjoying photography for many years. I used to shoot a lot of black and white in the early days, mainly because it was cheaper than colour. Then colour processing became cheaper than B&W processing so colour was the way forward. And I love colour! Indeed. But in …
