#869. Getting to love deadpan aesthetics

By pascaljappy | Opinion

It wasn’t that long ago that the painterly effect of Mandler-era Leica lenses would have made me swoon. This was to my photographic world what the Jaguar e-Type is to my automotive world.

By paulperton | Opinion

Of necessity, this is a long post – lots of words, that is. You have my apologies up front and can do a TL:DR and scroll down to the photographic content should you want.   I’m pretty much off topic here, but hope you’ll bear with me – there are lots of photographs to see. […]
