Leica Sighting | Her, Behind the Scenes

In the behind the scenes video of Her, Spike Jonze can be seen wearing and using his Leica M, keeping it high and tight. And in one shot, he meters off of his hand.

He has been seen with an M6 before. Unsure if this is the same.

My friend, the artist Carlee Fernandez, long ago accused me of photographing people only so I could have something that the light would fall onto.

She was not wrong.

Blue Origin’s logo. (Copyright, Blue Origin)

The logo for Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin has the Latin phrase “Gradatim ferociter” which translates to “step by step, ferociously.”

If you’re building a flying vehicle, you can’t cut any corners. If you do, it’s going to be [just] an illusion that it’s going to make it faster. … You have to do it step by step, but you do want to do it ferociously.

Jeff Bezos

Kyoto | Otagi Nenbutsu-ji

The Otagi Nenbutsu-ji temple in Kyoto features over a thousand Nio statues, some fierce and nightmarish, many of them humorous.

A surreal treat, creepy even during a sunny day.
