  • Incredible!!!…also, I want her coat!

  • Effing incredible.

  • I’m curious. What with the Leica Q would have prevented 95% of these shots? The 28mm fixed?

    • Yup! Mostly 😉 I’m being a bit tongue and cheek with my dislike of the Q, but having shot a few days with only my MP really did reinforce my feeling that shooting Leica is much more about the experience of using their cameras than what they are on paper. The Q does not provide even remotely the same experience as I get from the M series. Maybe I should just get over that, but Leica has the ability (much like apple) to create very strong emotional connections between their products and customers precisely because the experience and design of their stuff is so unique and thoughtful. I didn’t get that emotional connection with the Q at all.

  • man.. when I was there in April it was covered in ice.. so much more beautiful now!

  • wow.

  • If you took these with your Nikons, I would not be able to tell the difference. They are all stunning Sam.

  • Holy Crap, these are amazing.

  • Just fantastic stuff. Do you shoot the M-P in Live View as much as you do with your Nikons?

    • not really much at all unless I’m using the 50 .95 because the DOF is so crazy shallow

  • really inspiring stuff, Sam Hurd Photography. Quite possibly my favorite series of images Ive seen from you (which says a lot)
