Leica Q Test Shots #5: Guitars

Photography, Southern California

Last time I was in London, Leica had just released their Q. I headed to their Mayfair store to try it out, even though I knew it was on a months-long wait list (the salesman even informed me that I could hold one but not purchase it). Over the years, I’ve popped into other Leica stores to play with it, including locations in LA and Shanghai. Last week, I finally decided to give it a rent for a few days and officially try it out. This week I will be sharing some of those images. Lastly, a few macro shots of some of my various guitars, which are in serious need of a dusting.

Was only able to survive in the heat for an hour before all creative juices were dried up.
