Leica M9 with a different angle on the cycling race...

Once again the past week-end it was the cycle race in Johannesburg where more than 27 000 cyclists take part. As I have covered this race numerous times before, I took some images with a difference this year.

                                                                        At the start.

                                                                   Groups flashing by...

All images made with the M9 50mm Lux / 90mm Summarit.

Faces from places,part 4, Valencia...

The Leica M9, 90mm Summarit and the finch...

Right outside my bedroom-window, a yellow Finch are building nest's all year round. One day he will build it all day long, - then the female will inspect it and in most cases NOT be satisfied, so he pull it apart again.

                                                          An old one gets pulled apart.

With all this happening less than 2 meters away from the window, the 90mm Summarit is the ideal lens on the M9 to get some images of the most optimistic little bird I have ever seen :)

                                              A new nest in the construction phase.

With a simple set-up, you just have to wait to get some great images. As soon as the one nest is tore apart, - the building of the new one start.

I have said it before, the rendering, sharpness and bokeh of the Summarit 90mm is great!

Faces tells stories. Just sit and watch people, - you may not know them but you can find a million tales in the lines on their faces.

Leica M9 at Motor-sport, and it is hard work...

While at the races I picked a few images of the people doing the less glamourous work behind the scenes to keep the cars running.

All images made with the Leica M9 + 90mm Summarit.
