Portrait by Jonathan Lorange

This is the first time that I have posted another photographer's work on my blog, the colorized pictures notwithstanding. This picture of me was taken on Friday, 30th of September, 2011 by Jonathan Lorange. He used his Leica M6 and the lens was my 50mm f2 Summicron lens. Jonathan loves the lens. For more of Jonathan's work, visit his site at I cannot stress enough that it is worth the visit.

More great photographs have been taken with the 50 mm Summicron than any other lens. - Ralph Gibson

Ayesha as voodoo queen supreme.
Little known fact...the name of title character in H. Rider Haggard's
book She is Ayesha. And so is the title of the sequel. That'll set your
head ablaze.

Douglas DC3. The greatest airplane in history. That is the
consensus of most historians.

Pink P40N Shark

Curtiss P-40N Warhawk in pink. Reconnaissance planes
DID actually fly in services painted pink.


My scanner is an Epson V700 and it kicks serious ass.
This picture was taken in Hamilton, Ontario in 1987 and
I used a Leica M3, the greatest camera in the world.

Vickers Supermarine Spitfire Mk.XVI, known as the American Spitfire for its Packard built Rolls Royce Merlin engine. It was essentially a Spitfire Mk. IX LF (Low altitude Fighter).
This picture was shot with a 70-300mm Canon lens, WITHOUT stabilization. Remember that this plane is travelling at over 300 m.p.h. From this angle, the port wing seems smaller than the starboard wing, an illusion brought about by the wings' acute dihedral. (Yes, I know about aircraft design.)
