  2. Beautiful shots !
    Now I realized, you got Leiz Macro Elmer lens ! = much more expensive than the camera itself.
    The quality of the lens fully extracted by your patience on Zen mind = no competition ๐Ÿ˜€

    • PS: It seems I made mistake, the camera I saw in the shop was Gx-1.
      But your camera = Lx-1 could have done all of your photography, was even more
      remarkable —– obviously, you managed to push it to the limit (or even beyond).

      • Hi, yoshizen: just a quick note with more info later: I have an LX5 with a Leica lens, and love it. Thank you so much for your kind words about my photographs!

        • Sorry I’ve been a bit too nosy —– it was my bad habit to be an Ex-technical writer.
          —– now technology and the production system has gone to too complicated. (And too many models)
          Sigh ! May be I should rather stay in old technology ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. Steve’s comment made my day!

    Awesome shots Melanie! I’m really impressed with the detail, and the bokeh.
    What lens do you use?

    • Ha ha! Steve is hilarious. I’m glad you like the shot. I just use a Panasonic Lumix LX5 for all of my photographs. No lens changing involved. It’s a great little camera. It has a Leica lens.
