Naughty Eyes

In these two portraits of my wife, Michelle, I tried the Industar 61LD, 50mm f2.8
lens on my Leica M2. The
screw mount lens came with my Fed 2 which I
bought two years ago for $30. It is still very sharp wide open.

Tax Refund

Thanks to my tax refund, I finally was able to get my dream camera;
a Leica M2. I got it from Listed as a bargain, it was nevertheless
very clean and seems to work perfectly.
I haven't found an affordable Leitz lens yet so my screw mount Jupiter-12
and Canon 50 f1.8 lenses would do.

Taken at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. While everybody was busy taking pictures

Easter weekend was spent playing and Easter egg hunting with my nephews and niece.
