"The Well Seasoned Traveler"

On a steam engine train in Essex, Connecticut.

Some people can travel the world. They're well prepared,
and they love seeing new places.

I love seeing new places too. However, I hate taking trains,
buses, boats or planes :-)

Note: While I initially hated the Leica X1, I have to say, working within
its "preferred" parameters, i.e., low iso, slow focus, static/still subjects,
it is capable of very crisp images. In fact, compared to the Ricoh GR,
Nikon Coolpix A, I think the Leica might have the sharpest lens on it.

Leica X1
1/160s f/2.8 at 24.0mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original auto

Classic ! Love this look only with some Leica heritage to make it such a smooth shot. Great tonal range also.. BV

Excellent candid, Sam, and it is razor sharp. Beautiful B&W work with nice tonal range. Vote.

Great shot Sam. I love the B&W conversion, so fitting for the subject of steam train travel. BV

I've seen some pretty good shots from the X1 out there, so I think you're right about the sharpness.

Fine shooting for sure. I thought you were back in Asia somewhere. You sure have a lot of cameras Sam!
