Every time I travel I feel like I want to share a special moment with my friends around the world. This is why I started a little diary -blog of portraits in various locations and settings. The first one comes from the Andaz Hotel in Los Angeles - West Hollywood. This is a self portrait, and I am enjoining the late afternoon sun overlooking the city. In time I want to get into more expressive scenarios as well, and we’ll see where this journey takes me? For those of you who are into photography and are interested in knowing what camera was used, this was taken with the new Leica M Monochrome camera pre focused and set on self timer. I used the MM on a model shoot while in LA and the results are simply amazing. Manual focusing can be a challenge , but then I am all up for a good challenge .
