Battling the Monster

I don’t know but sometimes the desire to photograph just goes away from your main conscious. Then in a fraction of a second your eye captures a frame, focus, and processes it. All that happens institively but for that moment you feel great. Well, at least this is what happens to me. I’m always scanning, looking, and once in a while I capture a frame in my mind and so it goes. This week I finally got the irrestible feeling that I needed to go out there and capture something. I felt great and it almost felt like I had never skipped a day photographing. All the old reflexes are still there and my trusty Leica X1 is still rocking it hard. For an older camera, I think the image quality is still up there and it never ceases to amaze me. These folks really figured these lenses out quite well.

 

See ya.

My parents on their way to a Gala night to celebrate the club’s 49nth anniversary.

The Big Five Club has a rich history in South Florida. Former members of five of Havana’s most prestigious clubs bought the tract of land in 1967, in what was then a stretch of scrubland in unincorporated Dade off Southwest Eighth Street and 92nd Avenue.

“You’re stuck with me forever, Michie, get used to it. It’s the ties that bind, darlin’, the ties that bind.”

— Jim Marshall

Has it ever happened to you. You’re staring at one of your images and you absolutely fall in love with it. You feel you’ve captured that idyllic moment in just one click. Well, this is one of those frames for me.
