Monday was brilliant sunshine, a continuation of a beautiful weekend.

Midday and high contrast is about the worst time to take photographs.  With the bright light allowing low ISO and decent shutter speeds with an aperture of f/8 and zone focusing it was worthwhile trying to get a shot or two.

Shooting with a Leica and fast Leica glass there is quite a fashion for shooting wide open and little death of field like the shot above.  Its something I indulge in a lot in a studio setting where you can take care and retake the shot if necessary.

On the street, f/5.6 or f/8 rules to ensure you get a shot in focus.
