life is good – life sucks

fine art street photography by Markus Hartel, New York

I didn’t write in my journal for a while, the job got busy and I got lazy with photography for a while. The holiday season and all didn’t help either… Just recently I invested my hard earned dollars in a new gizmo, namely a Ricoh GR-D, a sweet digital device with any control a photographer desires.

Believe me, besides all the crap, its a photographers camera. I used this little thing for a while and got some decent shots. In reality I didn’t get any killer shots though. Not yet. Anything I posted on flickr today didn’t get any comments. well, it has been 2hrs or so, but I’m impatient… If I had the money, I’d buy an M8, no matter how flawed it is…

hell, I’m already thinking of getting an M6 again and deal with the film bs. You know, I just went trough my libraries and I was in awe looking at the film shots. Yeah, the photo is from the night I fried the M6 TTL as the camera, hot shoe and flash were drenched…
