. . . There’s an old saying ‘The Best-Laid Plans of Mice and Men Often Go Awry.’
In my case, at the Photography Show, that’s so very true. But on this occasion, it’s all for the better – much better.
I’d originally made a mental-plan of things to do, places to go and people to see. That was until today . . .
Without giving too much away at this stage, I’ve binned the Fuji X100T review that I’d originally made arrangements for. I didn’t even attempt my much hoped for ‘quick interview’ with Martin Parr. Perhaps another day?
Instead I did spend the largest ‘chunk’ of my final day at the show evaluating the Leica X – Review and pictures very soon and suffice it to say I was extemely impressed, especially with that Summilux lens. So good in fact, I feel another ebook coming on !!!
I’d also like to say hi and thank you to the many show visitors over the three days who spotted myself and the Street Photography Blog polo-shirt doing the rounds. Thank you for your kind words – I really had no idea the blog was that popular (Google Analytics doesn’t give the full picture). Cheers.
In the meantime, here’s five from the M9 with Voigtlander 50 f/1.5.
The M9 impressed greatly and worked flawlessly the whole time. Image quality excelled even at maximum ISO and in the occasionally low light of the show hall. It even managed on just the one battery for the entire show and which was actually on the same charge as when I reviewed the camera in Manchester.
The UK Photography Show 2015 was, judging by the ‘footfalls’ over the three days I was there, an unbridled success. There was a definate buzz in the air. The way the exhibits were arranged and put into practice, gave the visitors an unprecedented hands-on and interactive experience. A true sense of involvement.
If you haven’t been yet, you owe it to yourself to take advantage of the last day, Tuesday the 24th.
Good times all round !!!
