He’s Friendlier Than He Looks

First photo from Leica Q2 Monochrom goes to Bandit, who appeared in my “Cats of University Heights” series on Sept. 4, 2017. The Featured Image was a blind shot that should have been a throwaway. I hadn’t checked the electronic viewfinder before taking out to shoot the camera for the first time. The diopter needed adjusting, or so I learned seeing nothing but blur in the EVF.

The portrait is a close-crop. Vitals, aperture manually set: f/5.6, ISO 200, 1/160 sec, 28mm; 10:32 a.m. PST, Jan. 5, 2021.
