Strolling down the main drag across from my alma mater and banging away with the Leica Q2. Loving the way that sensor holds onto shadow detail and highlights. Really nice.


Construction never ends around the UT campus. A lot of the buildings that were lining the streets when I was at UT from 1974 to 1982 are getting torn down and buildings five times bigger are replacing them. Luxury dorms everywhere. When I lived on campus I lived, for a couple years, in an un-air conditioned dorm room. Yes, in Texas. My parents thought it might build character. I thought it would make me sweat. 

Air conditioned study lounge in the basement always kept at a Texas mandated 68°. You brought along a sweat shirt if it was a long study period....

Worked with the Q2 today. 

When I got home I found that FedEx had delivered the new (to me) used Zeiss 50mm f1.4 lens I ordered from Camera West. It looks perfect and the focus and aperture rings are like butter. Or, if you are doing the Mediterranean diet; like olive oil. Smooth and easy. 

I'll take it out for a spin on an appropriate camera tomorrow. Love the look through the finder of an SL2 so far.....

Anybody know how MJ is doing?
