Or, Picinisco and around in April 2011
As I am in my house in Colleruta, Picinisco, Italy right now, having a very productive time photographically by the way, I thought it was time to upload some of my photos from my last trip here, in April 2011.
This first one, above (Leica M8.2, forgot the lens) is of sheep in the road in Colleruta. I was in a hurry, jumping out of my car, and had a low shutter speed, so decided to emphasis the motion blur. I think it works well in black and white.
I like taking photos of the insides of toilets, and this one is from a toilet in a cafe in a nearby town. I love the colours and those 60s/70s tiles.
In these two photos a friend of a friend, Felix, is making a handmade leather case for a Leica. I now have a very nice red one on my M9. These tow photos are taken with the Leica M8.2 and Voigtlander 75mm Heliar f1.8, and show just how well the CV 75 does on the M8 (I am itching to try it on my M9 when I am back in London).
Finally, my vineyard (below) in April 2011. Looks very bare because they cut it right down in Spring. It looks so much better now (August) and I shall post some photos taken now in a future blog, but it is nice to chart it at all its stages. This one taken with a Hasselblad 500 c/M medium format camera and Zeiss 50mm f 4 wide angle lens
