Photographers will often talk about the unique signature of a particular lens. One that I've been having fun with lately is my 1946 50/2 Leica Summitar. It's not as sharp as some of the newer Leica glass. But there are design characteristics that produce that legendary "glow" that Leica is known for.

Last Friday, I had my second chance to shoot the Christian rock group, "Saved by Grace". I met with them beforehand to discuss what I was trying to accomplish. They are a great bunch of guys that made the exchange a very pleasurable one. One camera was equipped with the Summilux 50/1.4, and the other with the Summitar 50/2. Here are a few pictures taken with the Summitar, that 63 year-old piece of forgotten glass.
