L1007641

Before the past few days I was always afraid to use my 90mm lens on the Leica. When I did use it I would normally haul out the electronic viewfinder which showed me what the sensor was presently seeing — that way I didn’t use the rangefinder.

This morning I was playing around with the camera with the 90 mounted.

Alice was sitting on the back of the couch by the front windows. I focused on her nose. She yawned. I pressed the shutter.

The focus was dead on where I wanted it to be.

When things work just right is when you just get excited about the whole thing.

When you have faith in your equipment. When it’s just an extension of you.

That’s when it’s fun.
