“Chasing Light” Baltimore, MD. Photography is all about light & how you use it in a particular moment to convey atmosphere. The atmosphere this night was HEAVY- @b.c.___ laying it down in Charm City a few evenings ago. #Leica #LeicaCamera #LeicaCameraUSA #LeicaM #LeicaMonochrom #Monochrom #Summilux #Summilux50mm #🔴📷 #MyLeicaJourney #MKexplore #blackandwhite #bnw_planet #bnw_life #pocket_bnw #bnw_captures #noir_shots #RatsEyesPhotography #HoneTheAesthetic

“Strain” Baltimore, MD. Two nights ago the wife & I saw @youthcodeforever & @cchelseawwolfe in Baltimore (see last post for a photo of Youth Code.) My wife has been following Chelsea Wolfe for several years now, & she turned me on to her dark music- I was instantly a fan, but my schedule hasn’t allowed me to catch a gig up until now. The band put on an incredible show; the sound was heavy, THICK, & full of clarity, & the group was 100% on point & air tight (the music is often slower in tempo, & it was especially great to see the drummer Jess smack the shit outta the drums in perfect time- it’s MUCH HARDER to play drums slow and keep time than constant blazing double bass blast beats- when you screw up playing slow, everyone hears it.) But of course, as a vocalist, I was paying the most attention to her voice- on the drive home, my wife & I were talking about what makes a truly GREAT vocal artist (of which I am NOT one; I know I am a really good frontman- after 23 years in the game, I BETTER BE, it’s my job- but I’m NOT a great VOCAL ARTIST, not at all.) Natural talent isn’t enough. And it’s not enough to have technique & sing in key. It’s not enough to have a good tone. It’s not enough to have stamina. It’s not even enough to have great stage presence- no, what makes for a truly great vocal ARTIST is when someone takes all those things, combines them, & then does something UNIQUE with that voice- that is what makes a truly great ARTIST. I shot this photo during the last song of their set, & Chelsea was doing just that, using that voice in a way that made me think “WHAT IN THE HELL IS THAT WOMAN DOING RIGHT NOW? HOW?!?!? ”- it was freaking AMAZING. Best show I’ve seen in quite some time. @cchelseawwolfe & @youthcodeforever are out on tour for a few more weeks- go see it, & buy Chelsea’s new album, “Hiss Spun.” So freaking good... #Leica #LeicaCamera #LeicaCameraUSA #LeicaM #LeicaMonochrom #Monochrom #Summilux #Summilux50mm #🔴📷 #MyLeicaJourney #MKexplore #blackandwhite #bnw_planet #bnw_life #pocket_bnw #bnw_captures #noir_shots #RatsEyesPhotography #HoneTheAesthetic #chelseawolfe #youthcode

“You Gotta Mean It” Baltimore, MD. So glad I got to see my sister @seriouscreep do her thing with her band @youthcodeforever last night in Baltimore. I met Sara when she was working for another band as road crew on my last tour- I could tell from talking to her she would be a great frontwoman (strong personality, strong opinions- if you’re gonna front a band, ESPECIALLY an aggressive band, you need those character traits- nobody wants to watch some wishy-washy wallflower tentatively clutch the mic like it’s gonna burn them while speaking about NOTHING), so it made me really happy to witness it in person last night. Youth Code is out right now with @cchelseawwolfe- it’s a KILLER tour package, so go check ‘em out! #Leica #LeicaCamera #LeicaCameraUSA #LeicaM #LeicaMonochrom #Monochrom #Summilux #Summilux50mm #🔴📷 #MyLeicaJourney #MKexplore #blackandwhite #bnw_planet #bnw_life #pocket_bnw #bnw_captures #noir_shots #RatsEyesPhotography #HoneTheAesthetic#getonstageanddestroyorgetoutoftheway #youthcode #chelseawolfe

“The Grime and the Glow” RVA. #Leica #LeicaCamera #LeicaCameraUSA #LeicaM #LeicaMP #LeicaMP240 #Summilux #Summilux35mm #LeicaCraft #🔴📷 #MyLeicaJourney #MKexplore #streetdreamsmag #RatsEyesPhotography #HoneTheAesthetic
“Te Piha” Piha Beach, NZ. Lion Rock, a site sacred to the Māori people, is freaking amazing, & provides unreal views from the top. However, many people have been injured & several have died here over the years after falling off it while climbing, so the way to the top of it is blocked off now (& I think there was a rockslide a while back that makes the climb difficult.) My first trip to Piha, a ballsy Kiwi buddy of mine & myself made the journey up though- it was amazing, but I can’t in good conscious recommend doing it to y’all. Still, I love walking the black sand beaches there and checking the waves. Haven’t gotten to surf them yet, but I will (oh yeah- and people drown here a lot 😳- they even have their own TV show called Piha Rescue.) If you’re going some place like this, you better be in shape & treat your environment with the respect it deserves... #Leica #LeicaCamera #LeicaCameraUSA #LeicaM #LeicaMP #LeicaMP240 #Elmarit #Elmarit28mm #LeicaCraft #🔴📷 #MyLeicaJourney #MKexplore #streetdreamsmag #RatsEyesPhotography #HoneTheAesthetic
“Kokuhaku” Tokyo, Japan. This is Shibuya Crossing, the world’s busiest pedestrian intersection. Every time the traffic signal changes, up 2,500 people cross. From the second story window of the Starbucks in middle of the photo (as seen in my favorite movie of all time, “Lost in Translation”), you get an amazing view of the crossing- if you’re ever in Tokyo, you gotta go to that window & watch- it’s an incredible sight to see! And from the ground, I have witnessed strangely dressed people doing all kinds of weird stuff in this intersection (usually late at night)- but this couple took a second to stop as they were crossing & just simply give each other a lingering kiss. Most of the time, I would consider such a gratuitous public display of affection excessive (especially within the conservative culture of Japan) & even tacky (get a room), but placed in the context of this insane location I think it’s very nice & quite symbolic. Here, in the craziest, busiest, most hurried, neon-lit totally bonkers intersection on the entire planet, this couple paused to have a human connection & say “You are important to me, & I love you.” This world is getting more & more messed up everyday- we all need a bit more “I love you” in our lives. So tell someone you care about that you love them today- it’s more important than you would think... #Leica #LeicaCamera #LeicaCameraUSA #LeicaM #LeicaMP #LeicaMP240 #Elmarit #Elmarit28mm #LeicaCraft #🔴📷 #MyLeicaJourney #MKexplore #streetdreamsmag #RatsEyesPhotography #HoneTheAesthetic

#Repost @leicagalleryla ・・・ 📸by @drandallblythe This is my friend Nikki. I took this picture in Wetzlar, Germany, earlier this year when @leicacamerausa flew us out to Leica HQ to play with the new M10 the day it was released- boy, did we have a blast! (no, they didn’t give us one.) We were at an after party, & as both of us are sober guys, we stuck pretty tight together. We were sitting at a table with a lady who couldn’t really grasp why we were drinking coffee, not booze. “Oh, I couldn’t live without my wine,” she said. “Lady,” I replied, “I literally couldn’t live WITH anymore alcohol- I drank more than enough in my day. In fact, I have drank more booze and done more drugs, BY FAR, than everyone else in this freaking room combined... oh yeah, except THAT guy- he’s definitely got me beat,” & pointed at Nikki (cut me some slack here- he WAS in Motley Crüe & all... IN THE EIGHTIES. They were kinda legendary for excess, ya know?) So here is Nikki, trying his best to explain to this woman the sheer insanity of what it’s like to be an alcoholic/junkie. The look on his face says it all- I love this photo, hahaha! Nikki’s been clean & sober 16 years now, & tonight at @leicagalleryLA is the opening of the very first gallery exhibition of his photography, “Conversations with Angels” (it will be up until Nov. 5, so if you’re in LA stop by!) I’m so very proud of you, buddy! Much love & have fun tonight, @nikkisixxpixx - you earned it! #Leica #LeicaCamera #LeicaCameraUSA #LeicaM #LeicaMonochrom #Monochrom #Summilux #Summilux50mm #🔴📷 #MyLeicaJourney #leicastorela #blackandwhite #bnw_planet #bnw_life #pocket_bnw #bnw_captures #noir_shots #RatsEyesPhotography #HoneTheAesthetic #nikkisixx #conversationswithangels #Repost
