While hiking one Saturday I saw this bird flying alone in the distance. I wish I knew what kind it was. However, it reminded me to not be afraid to fly alone.

"You haven't been out to Saratoga yet? You need to see it before they close it down for the season," said Pauline. One of the reasons I've been behind on updating this series is because I came out to Troy, NY for a contract with Kaleel Jamison Consulting Group. Although I took a couple of cameras with me, all of my developing equipment and chemicals are back home and finding a lab I trust is like trying to find a good barber. The series might continue to be updated in batches, as I'm waiting to have several rolls to develop before sending them off to Panda Lab in Seattle. Until I decide where I'll be on a more permanent basis, they'll be processing both my black and white and commissioned color film.
It's very rare I take a day off from work. But on the second Friday out here, I was told that I should take the Friday off and go to Saratoga with some of the boss' friends and enjoy something I can't experience anywhere else. I'm glad I did. Not only did I have a great time, but it definitely provided some cool photo opportunities. Thanks for the hospitality and treating me like family Geno!
I finally did it. I acquired a Leica. While in Portland to do a couple of photo shoots, I stopped by Pro Photo Supply to pick up some Portra 160 and T-Max 100 when I stumbled across a Leica M6 in great condition. I picked it up and immediately learned what all the fuss is about in a well-made, all-mechanical Leica. After 24 hours of deliberating whether this camera was more important than eating, I decided that I could do the ramen thing for a month to make of for it. It was definitely worth it.
Here are some of the black and white images I shot with it later that day when I loaded it up with some classic Ilford HP5 film.
