Wish Us Luck

In the span of less than a year, the Leica Store in Washington, D.C. has become a remarkable gallery space and photography hub.  Some weeks ago, they announced a juried competition entitled “D.C. As I See It,” open to photographers from D.C., Maryland, and Virginia, but limited to photographs of  the “real D.C.,” taken with Leica equipment.  You might imagine this perked our interest.  Let’s see, live in D.C.  Check.  Take pictures with Leica equipment.  Check.  Take pictures of what we consider the real D.C.  Ok, we said, and we submitted five images.

The three jurors are all eminent Washington photographers, printers, and gallerists, and the two-phase process consists of a review of images submitted digitally, and after a cull, a review of the finalists’ prints.  We are pleased to say two of our images made it into the finals, which means sometime today they either will or will not be chosen for display on the Leica Store’s walls.

We have one color image in contention, taken with a Leica M9 and 35mm Summilux last September, when we were wandering the city with the great Danish photographer and workshop leader Thorsten Overgaard.

Ice Cream Man

A second image was taken with the Leica Monochrom and 50mm APO-Summicron-Asph near Logan Circle just a few weeks ago.

Leave Me Alone

Wish us luck!  We’ll report in later if either of them makes it.
