Time of Flower shirts

Flowers on the shirts, not yet in the trees. This harsh Winter seems here to stay.  (click on picture to enlarge)

    Your photoblog is a true inspiration. I visit it very frequently and it is always a pleasure to see such great street photography.

    I wonder how you post-process your pictures to get that elegant brownish tone. Maybe you like to tell me your secret…

    Merci Joerg.

    Why would you want that brownish tone when you master so well colors ? ;) I saw your Flickr and like a lot the way you play with them, congratulations.
    As for my post-processing, here are some hints there, but I’ll still keep a few secrets …

    I again found your site after much time away. The photos seem to only get better. I will visit paris in Oct 2010, and would love to bring back some shots as good as yours.

    Would buying an M9 help?

    An M9 won’t take the pictures by itself ;) I use them because they are all manual and stealthy, the main advantages of rangefinders. Now if you like the idea of a fixed prime lens, than you should definitely try. The M8 is a good way to start IMO.
