My brother Leo (an artist) and my nephew Hal taken in the laneway behind Gallery Pom Pom in Chippendale. Leo was having a show with another excellent Sydney artist Phil James. This was one of the first times I fell in love with the colour cast of the Leica M9.

This tiny Paris bar was a great find. It was very dark so I had to take all my shots by resting the Leica M9 on the bar on long exposure. This was back when we used to smoke, and we took this in a little smoking area using an iPhone torch to light Emma.

Copenhagen is a bike-friendly city. You can stand in one spot and frame a shot and cyclists will ride straight through the frame. I could take these sort of shots all day. Leica M Monochrom.

I came across this young man meditating in the middle of one of Copenhagen’s busiest bridges. The constant stream of pedestrians and pushbikes should have been pretty distracting but he was completely sedate.

While we were in Copenghagen, I came across this construction site that had sheets of reflective metal nailed to the plywood barriers. The warped reflections created an awesome effect. Shot on Leica Monchrom.

Newtown Street Art, 2017

I was trying to carry around an old Canon EOS Rebel loaded with Kodak Portra 400 whenever I went out walking. It was super light and great for taking street shots. I kept a 40mm pancake lens on it to keep down the weight. Sometimes the auto focus was a bit slow so I don’t take it with me as much anymore, but it was (and is) a great no-brainer travel solution.

This was shot on a Fuji GX617 that I picked up cheap on eBay. It’s a big-ass rangefinder that’s really hard to focus but the negatives are absolutely massive (6 by 7) when you can get them sharp.

This was around the corner from our hotel Le Pigalle, I was trying to take a photo of the sign and this bunch of kids strolled into my shot. Each kid had a different type of swagger-walk that I couldn’t capture in a still image, but I still like this shot.

The Nicholas Cave exhibition at Carriageworks in Redfern was a great show to take photos in. I went there with Emma on my birthday and took my Leica M9. This was the last photo I took before the sensor in the M9 completely shat itself. Unfortunately I’ll have to take it in for repair, god knows how much that will cost. I’ll blog about the experience soon.

I ran into this young chap on King Street and asked if I could take his picture. He said yes, so long as I posted it on Instagram. His face fell when I told him it was a film camera and I wouldn’t developing the film for a couple of days. Shot on Ilford HP5 on my Leica M7
