Thursday night was Melissa's birthday party, an annual late-summer affair. I was out of work early enough to go (I'm sorry that all posts for the time being will start with an explanation of what work did or didn't let me get to) and since I knew I'd be up on a dark roof, I brought my Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.1 lens with me. I got this lens nearly 4 years ago and it's fun but so hard to focus. As my new Leica has live view that makes negotiating it's super thin depth of field a little easier, but still hard. This post begins with varied photos taken in low low light.
