People Taking Pictures Of People Painting


Leica M, 50mm APO-Summicron-Asph

Last week, when we posted pictures of the Cherrypalooza on the Mall, our friend Ted Leonsis posted on his blog “Ted’s Take” a link to Tulip Frenzy, entitled “Pictures of People Taking Pictures On The Mall.”  This is a picture of someone making a painting on the Mall, and we admire the artist’s skill.

If you have any question, though, about what a sharp combo the Leica M and 50mm APO-Summicron-Asph make, check out this 100% crop — and we mean really check it out via clicking on it.  We note the photo was taken using the rangefinder focus, not the EVF.

The Business Of Happiness Is Out: GO BUY IT.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on February 8, 2010 by johnbuckley100

Today, The Business of Happiness by Ted Leonsis with John Buckley was published, and for those who want a terrific, inspirational, cannot-put-it-down read, go here.

For those who want to see Ted’s terrific interview on CNBC this morning, go here.

Tulip Frenzy will, this day only, drop the mask and its author will admit what a blast it was writing the book with Ted Leonsis.

Ted is one of the great human beings on Earth, a brilliant executive, a fun and unpretentious person, and the living refutation of the biblical adage that it is harder for a rich man to get to Heaven than a camel through a needle’s eye.  He has a really wonderful story and a great perspective on happiness.

Go buy the book.  You’ll learn from it, as I did working with Ted on it.  Not only that, but buying the book will keep the lights turned on at Tulip Frenzy World HQ.

What are you waiting for?
