Taking the Leica M9 for a Stroll in Downtown Amman
I’ve been on a hiatus from the blog for a while, I’ve been traveling all around as usual, working on a number of exciting projects. Thousands of photos have been taken since my last post and i’m slowly going through a bunch of different edits that I hope to publish on the blog soon. As you can see I have also changed the theme for the blog and this will allow me to display my photos larger than anytime before. Looking to get a new website up too, so keep an eye out.
I’d like to dedicate this post to Emad (pictured above) , a long time collaborator of mine, who for the past 5 years or so scanned my negatives and developed my color and medium format film in Amman. I just found out today that he passed away 3 weeks ago, he was one of the few people that understood what I was doing with my photos and has helped me share my film photos on this blog. I needed to clear my mind for a minute so I headed downtown to shoot some photos.
Thanks to the good people at Leica, I have a M9 on loan for a couple of days, and it was time to put it to the tests on the streets of Amman. All I can say is that I can’t wait to own this camera one day.
So here is a selection of what caught my attention this evening.
