Leicaphilia’s Annual Gear Purge

Ricoh GXR with A12 Leica M Mount  Module and Ricoh Electronic Viewfinder


– comes with box, charger, battery etc – almost new. Everything works perfectly.

The Ricoh GXR with M Mount module  is one of the great bargains if your’re looking for a digital M. Good examples of this are becoming rarer to find in new condition. Love this camera. Prefer it to the M8/9. I’ve got two copies, one superfluous to requirements. Please do not make me put this on Ebay.

    This is out of the scope of your post.
    I have been reading your blog for a few weeks now.
    I was introduced by Rob Campbell. I find his reminiscing to be spot on.
    On this New Year day I read this statement,

    “Let your feet guide you, slowly, as if you were cured by the pleasure of looking, humming, and what you will see you will start photographing more carefully, and you will learn about composition and framing, you will do it with your camera, and your net will be filled with fish when you arrive home.”
    From your post dated April 29th. 2014 titled “How to Become a Photographer”
    This from Magnum photographer Sergio Larrain in 1982 to his nephew, who had asked his Uncle for advice on how to become a photographer.

    I have been practicing photography for 8 years. I do not believe I am bragging when I say I get it, however, I must say that I am aghast at what I do not know.

    Your blog has taught me much about the art of seeing. It’s not about the gear but about what’s between the ears and in the heart, to some degree. The heart being a driving force in this endeavor. The longing to see what’s there in order to capture the imagination of the viewers in a moment of time and proving a satisfying to the longings of the heart and soul.

    I have learned a lot about the tools that inspire a person to capture a moment in time “not enable, for to be enabled requires a walk, a ride, a drive, or an imagination and a minds eye transfered to the physical actions that produce the hearts results.” Is that statement bullshit? I don’t think it is.

    Tim, thank you for this labor of love. It’s what I’ve been looking for.

    Mr. J, I still want to see your work. I believe you think it as for naught but I doubt very much that it is.

    Happy New Year
