Paris – Leica M9 with 60mm Hexanon at F2.8, 1/500, ISO160
It is never easy to post a picture of a Ford Falcon without risking to hurt sensitivities. It is indeed deeply associated to a dark period of Argentina’s history. Yet I also do find it a fascinating car, and can’t help imagine B movies stories whenever I see one at night. (click on picture for high res)

It is often not advised to buy a Leica if one of the main use is to shoot his kids. Now I understand why. But still, it is feasible and its limitations might lead you to frame outside of the box (in the first sense evidently). So this morning I mounted the 90mm Macro Elmar with close up adapter on my M9. Quite a challenge and difficult to get sharp shots, but who cares, it is all about the moment, isn’t it ?

Two weeks already have gone by since I became a father. And I haven’t posted since then. This is one of the first learning of a first time dad, it does not really let you time to do anything else. I still have my camera with me all the time, but 99% of pictures are about that little thing that keeps you up late at nights. But don’t worry, this blog ain’t gonna be the next cutebabies.com
Still, I miss a lot shooting in the streets and will eventually get back to it very soon.
Ok, I promess, I’ll get back to real stuff soon ;) (click on picture for high res)
Self-portrait – Idle street photographer – Leica X1 at 36mm, F2.8, 1/40, ISO1600
You might have noticed that I haven’t posted in quite a few days. Well, the reason was that my wife Natalia gave birth to our first child yesterday. One of the name she suggested was surprisingly “Henri”. I thought it would be a bit too fanboy for a street photographer
So Mathis it is, born in Rosario on a sunny Autumn day. (click on picture for high res)
