"Bad Asses"

These Bad Asses are busting out of that store display and they're comin' to
git ya :-)

Shot with the original 8mp Ricoh GR Digital, aka "GRD." What can I say? Got mine in 2006
and it's probably my favorite street camera of all time.

Black and whites straight from this camera are the best I have seen from a digital camera.
Color has a nice grainy touch to the images. Why not post a b&w shot here then? Got a whole
b&w GRD gallery already in here somewhere so I thought I'd post some color :-)

But b&w is the GRD's claim to fame and there it is bad ass! In all fairness, I have NOT tried
the Leica Monochrom and at its current price, probably won't for a long time. However, I loved
the original GRD so much, I probably will try the new GR, APS-C model sometime soon.

Ricoh GR Digital
1/26s f/2.4 at 5.9mm iso800 full exif

Well composed and warmth with the comment.
To appreciate more , you must increase the size to small for me!
Today with the dimensions of the screen we can drop in the image , it is important.So we can feel all the sensations of the street fighter with his "gun".
I say that because it is an interesting capture in a lot of points of view

Vicious little dudes! I really like how the GR renders the colors and contrasts. Still a fine camera. Top shot. V

Excellent composition to accentuate the creepiness. I like the thick effect that this camera produces. I voted

We miss "Chucky"...they should bring him back in a new movie. There is so much digital noise here it is almost like looking at a comic book up close! I have fought against noise, and grain, for so long it is hard for me to accept it as being part of the artistic process. But I have an open mind...

Super framing and angle... it's alive and scary... and I like it :^)

Great perspective to emphasize the subject for the theme. v
Great info on the GRD.
