This site has moved to another blog called, ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. There will me no further posts to this site. The new site will continue so show my regular shooting progress, but will also contain other topics on photography, such as hands-on equipment and software reviews, historical information on photography, and much more.

When it was set up, the DAILY STOCK SHOT PROJECT was supposed to be a one year project. Last year I extended the project another year due to the popularity of the site, but now it is time to move on.

If you wish to continue following, please visit my new blog at ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY and save it as a new link.

While in Portland, I am attending a conference of The International Leica Society (LHSA).  In addition to photographing with the Leica M9 I brought along several older Leica film cameras to use.  Here are a couple of them.

This is a Leica III made in 1937.  The lens is a 2.8cm Leitz Hektor having a maximum aperture of f/6.3.  This was the extreme wide angle of its day. 

One of my favorite film cameras to use is this 1968 Leica M4 in black paint.  It has been retro-fit by Leica with a later M6 viewfinder that includes an extra viewing frame for a 28mm lens.
