You can see images taken with the M9 and various lenses in my "Kiwi Summer - Lakes" post. I'm delighted that my "Look up to You" image has been selected by the editors as a Leica Fotografie International (LFI) Master Shot. I'm really pleased to get another shot in the M9 Gallery.

Ok, last one of these for a little while. We're off to the lakes for a couple of days, hopefully I will get some shots. Street Photography on hold until the kids holidays are over!!! I'm delighted that my "Mitchell" image has been selected by the editors as a Leica Fotografie International (LFI) Master Shot. I'm really pleased to get more recognition from Leica.
