Birds by Dewey Hammond

The videos don't really do it justice, although the birds are a bit more clear in the second video. Hundreds of thousands of birds flocking, if not millions.

Monster on MUNI by Dewey Hammond

When I'm with Dragon on MUNI or BART or whatever, and it's crowded, he gets too much attention, so we like to play a little game called IGNORE EVERYONE AND TAKE SELFIES. And when it's not crowded? We like to play a little game called IGNORE EVERYONE AND TAKE SELFIES.

My first trip to Queens by Dewey Hammond

I've been to New York a million billion times, but until this week I had never been to Queens. I spent an evening in Astoria, and my brief impression of Queens was that it is better than both Manhattan and Brooklyn. This week was also the first time I had ever been to Brooklyn. I spent an afternoon in Williamsburg. It was OK. Manhattan is fine too. But Queens felt more authentic.

Leica MP + 35mm f/1.4 Summilux-M ASPH by Dewey Hammond

After nearly four years and probably a few hundred rolls, I recently sold my Leica MP rangefinder film camera and Leica 35mm f/1.4 Summilux-M ASPH lens. 

These are five of my favorite shots that I took with the Leica setup.

San Francisco, California. Kodak Tri-X 400. HH.

Arlington, Virginia. Ilford XP2 Super 400 BW C41, two or three years expired. Dragon.

Beijing, China. Kodak Ektar 100. I like this not for the photograph but for the mystery.

London, England. Kodak Ektar 100. Mei Mei.

Russian Far East. Arista 400. Dmitry dips his new passport in vodka, a tradition for important documents.

Dragon in Hollywood by Dewey Hammond

During a recent stay in Hollywood, the dude at the front desk gave me the hotel's nicest suite, presumably because it was already somewhat late, the suite was empty, he was feeling generous, and he thought I was deserving; or, more likely: Dragon's disarming and charming face, complete with its world-class underbite and admittedly questionable odors, opens doors. 

To say thanks, I served Dragon breakfast in a martini glass on the dining room table.
