shoot out

shoot outit happened in cologne. he won…

minimal bear

minimal bearanother shot of urben’s great signature stencil. i like to read it as a bear (most probably because of some similarity to the logo of the berlin olympics 2000 that never happened) but i’m not sure that that’s intended.

the astute reader might have noticed (only from the tags of course) that this shot was taken with a leica m (type 240) and a leica summarit 75 f2.5 lens.  no i haven’t robbed a bank and i haven’t won the lottery… i’ve taken part in the ‘you and leica m’ promotional campaign that is still running until the end of october. you can get a leica m with lens for two days for free. of course you have to sign the rental contract with your blood and all your children and their children will be liable for any damage on the gear (ok, i exaggerate) but otherwise it’s really completely free and i can highly recommend taking part even if you are only remotely interested in camera gear.

there will be a write-up of my experiences soon with a lot of sample photos but i’m quite busy at the moment and need a bit more time to do this. since the campaign is heading towards its end, though, i wanted to spread the information at least in time.
