I still believe your most interesting work is shot with a rangefinder!! Please give the M8 a go at some landscape work. I find your latest work with the M8 is the freshest and most inspired work in a long time. Perhaps someone should make a medium format digital rangefinder, sort of Mamiya 7D or Fuji 670D!
Back home again; crisis over.
Yes, you're quite right, I have thought that Michael's city and non-landscape (in the strict sense) work is always very fresh.
This has been discussed before on these pages and it isn't meant as any criticism - by myself, at least, of his other work - it's just that we are swamped with landscape stuff not only on this site, appropriately enough, but everywhere else too, and one more landscape however wonderful is just part of the 'another rock another tree' syndrome; there is a shock failure to all this natural world stuff created by its very ubiquity. By contrast with this, the rare or less visible metaphors for the human condition and the human construct are rendered more surprising, playing straight into the hands of those of us blessed with the eyes to see. And also, I suspect, those of us with the eyes to appreciate that vision in someone else!
Interestingly enough, nice to see a squarish image out of a Leica...
