Street photography in Bolzano, Italy

August 26, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

This afternoon I went for a walk in the center of Bolzano. Although it was a Monday in late August, there were still many tourists. I decided to go out again with the good old Leica M9 and the small latest edition Voigtländer Color-Skopar 35mm F2.5.

This is, in my opinion, a perfect and very light combo to take some daily street shots. My Leica M9 shows the signs of almost four years of intensive use around the world and the small 35/2.5 is cheap enough not to require special attention: I just think to photograph, without bothering to leave some mark on the camera.

Well, I pulled out these three shots: these are not my best photos, but for today I am satisfied. And I’m particularly pleased with how the small 35 mm works: this is a fantastic lens, razor sharp right from the maximum aperture, fast and precise in focus and with a never annoying bokeh. I recommend the new Voigtländer Color-Skopar 35mm F2.5  for those looking for an inexpensive alternative to other famed 35 mm.
