In this issue of my series Shades of Light, I bring to you the one day life of a Leica photographer wandering the streets of an iconic city, Melbourne.
I spent the day in Melbourne with nothing but my Leica M9. Although I packed a few lenses, I mainly used the 50mm Summilux ASPH.
I remember reading a lot of magazines, books, weblogs and also online videos, when asked who they would like to photograph along, most of photographers would throw out big names in the photography history.
While I look up to a lot of photographers, established or even new comers, while I admire the work of many, the one person that I really want to shoot along is my father.
We share the same passion for photography, actually I must say that I got it from him, we even use the same gears (again I walk on his footsteps) I just realised that we never had or took the opportunity to shoot together. Actually once. If I am asked which photographer I would like to shoot along with? I will say: “my Dad.”
