Leica M Edition 60

Any­one have $20,000 to drop on this Leica?

To cel­e­brate of the 60th anniver­sary of M cam­era, Leica pro­duced the lim­ited edi­tion Leica M Edi­tion 60. The kit includes a Leica M-P dig­i­tal cam­era and the Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. lens, both cre­ated by Audi Design.

This is more of a col­lec­tors item than any­thing, but it’s amaz­ing to see the amount of detail that went into it, even down to the pack­ag­ing and presentation.

Eichler Homes

Eich­ler Homes was a com­pany, by vision­ary Joseph Eich­ler, that built over 11,000 Mid-Century mod­ern homes in Cal­i­for­nia between 1950 and 1974. Eich­ler was respon­si­ble for bring­ing mod­ern archi­tec­ture to middle-class Amer­i­cans. Eich­ler Homes com­mis­sioned some of the most promi­nent mod­ern archi­tects of the time includ­ing Anshen & Allen, Claude Oak­land & Asso­ciates, Jones & Emmons, A. Quincy Jones, and Raphael Soriano.

The pho­tos above were taken by Dar­ren Bradley and are part of a col­lec­tion of Eich­ler Homes that he’s pho­tographed. Also, be sure to check out his other Flickr collections.

Oscar Niemeyer was a Brazil­ian mod­ernist archi­tect known for his design of Brasília, and his work on the United Nations build­ing in NYC. His design for Brasília is always an inspi­ra­tion for me. The way he worked with the lines and space really make it a beau­ti­ful and func­tional construction.

These won­der­ful pho­tos taken by Mar­cel Gau­therot bring out the beauty in the archi­tec­ture. You can see more of them, and read more about Brasília, in this arti­cle.

These incred­i­ble pho­tos are part of an edi­to­r­ial series shot by Vienna based stu­dio, ate­lier olschin­sky, for Nev­er­the­less Mag­a­zine. The color tones through­out the series are breathtaking.

Back in 2007, the cre­ators of the motor­cy­cle mag­a­zine DicE included a 16 page skate mag­a­zine called BosH in the mid­dle of it. The mag­a­zine fea­tures images that spanned the early days of skat­ing, and also inter­views with skate leg­ends like Steve Olson and Duane Peters. BosH only lasted 3 years, but it seems to me like it was one of the best skate pub­li­ca­tions pro­duced in a while. I really love the cover designs and the use of min­i­mal pho­tog­ra­phy, and the type is perfect.

I’m drool­ing over the pho­tos of Laura Dart. Great mood and color tone.

As you may already know, pho­tog­ra­phy is some­thing that I have a pas­sion for. I just don’t do enough of it, so I went ahead and cre­ated a blog called Mil­limetr where I’ll be post­ing my pho­tos. It should be a nice moti­va­tor and hope­fully it will get me to take more pho­tos. Most of what will be fea­tured will be taken with an iPhone 4S using a won­der­ful app called Mat­te­box. I’ll also fea­ture pho­tos taken with my Canon T2i, but I expect a major­ity of the pho­tos to come from my iPhone since it’s always with me. There is a known quote, not sure who said it, that I believe to be true:

“The best cam­era is the one that’s with you.”

Peo­ple stress about which cam­era to buy, but at the end of the day it’s about tak­ing pic­tures. I’m hop­ing this works out to be true for me.

I’ve also whipped up a logo for the blog using the type­face Prox­ima Nova Extra Con­densed by Mark Simonson.

Enjoy.

I absolutely love this series of pho­tographs by Eric Cahan. He man­ages to cap­ture amaz­ing col­ors and super sim­ple gra­di­ents. What really amazes me about the pho­tos is how sim­ple some of the images are. Lovely.
