M9 Alive and ....well- Post Your Pics Here!

The Leica M9 for all it's faults makes beautiful pictures. In the spirit of what this camera provides us, this thread is dedicated to any M9 pics you care to post. Let's get behind our M9!

Thanks

Thanks for responding aperture64, and yes it was what caught my eye here but I chose the version with closer focus because the color and form of the mural were so vivid.....nor do I have f64 on the Leica lenses

Ever since I was a kid I have loved the fish ladder at the locks.
It's a tough place to make a photograph. No flash allowed and pretty dark overall. A great place to take out of towner folks.

I walk around the Ballard Locks quite a bit, it is a great place all four seasons of the year. It was a spectacular summer the salmon runs have been large and long running. Those two were taken yesterday since I am working night shifts for a month and it was nice to be out and about during a weekday.

For the two shots above just set the aperture to wide open, f3.8, the M9 to AE and held the M9 tight against the railing on the level above the observation deck.

Nicely done....always fun to make use of railings, posts and 16 ounce glasses of ale!

Luscious color! I have no doubt that someday we'll look back on these as fondly as we now do Kodachromes. Unique and wonderful. The B&W is pretty special as well.

I just got my M9-P recently as well. Looking forward to shooting a lot with it in my Japan trip next week, but here is one with Elmar-M 50/2.8.

Great thread idea. Still loving mine. Chrome M9-P: it's like I have a digital M2. Love the colours. This is the 35 C Biogon at 800 ISO, by accident.

Also ISO 800, 25 Color Skopar, 1/15s.

Thanks very much Icebear. I've enjoyed your shots lately too, that mural above and those great night shots at 1250 and even 1600 in colour.

This is back to ISO 160, 35 C Biogon again.

It balances well. The Zeiss colour suits film very well - I was using Superia 200 a lot, and I really like the colours from the Zeiss lenses on the M9.

Black and white with the M9 is great too...ZM C Biogon 21:

The M9 can do cats, as the first page proved. Need the Nex or new M to focus beyond 100mm? Nope.

135 Tele Elmar at f4.

Nice cat pic :-) I assume you had very little time to take this picture. How easy is it to focus with the 135mm?

She doesn't stay still, but I guess I know her well enough to sense the timing.

Anil, she stayed a while there, a Russian Blue. The Tele-Elmar has a long focus throw and with so little use since it was made in the '70s it's a little stiff. Fast enough focus nevertheless I think. My enjoyment of that lens has been transformed by framing with the SHOOC finder.

50 C Sonnar. Manual exposure, for what would have been an in-camera automatic metering challenge.

I love the tonality of this. And those mountain shots are great. Welcome to the forum, I forgot to say earlier.
