Dubai Dune Bashing

Leica D-Lux 5

An experience of a lifetime weaving through the trackless desert tackling both low and high dunes. The Toyota Land Cruiser 4WD were commandeered by skillful drivers. A “must experience” for those visiting Dubai in the UAE.

ANZAC Day Service

5D3_2144ANZAC Day on 25 April marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.

In Victory Life Centre, one of many churches in Perth, Western Australia, a special commemorative service was held in honour of all the service men and women who had fallen, not only in the First World War but also in the Second World War and conflicts in other parts of the world.

For many of us who are overseas migrants who settled in Australia and made this our home, we are thankful for those who laid down their lives for the sake of peace.

My Journey with Leica

img_3802

Leica was a name synonymous with quality optics. Like many passionate photographers I was attracted to Leica cameras.

The first Leica camera I owned was the R7 which was a SLR film camera, and together with three lenses in 28mm, 50mm and 90mm the outfit gave me a wonderful experience into the Leica world.

Soon with the advance of digital, I graduated to a rangefinder Leica M8 which had a cropped sensor. Finding the handling of a rangefinder intuitive, I soon traded the M8 to the M9 which has a full sensor. My interest in photography soon took me back to film and an M6 Titanium was added.

So after several years with Leica, do I still like Leica cameras? The answer is a resounding yes. While I also own other high end digital SLR cameras, I find the Leica rangefinder very intuitive and a joy use.
