These photographs were taken at recent Photographica Fairs by the society's official photographer, Robert Lansdale. The prints were scanned in gray scale, and the gamma adjusted to better match the limited dynamic range of the computer monitor. Gray scale and resolution were also reduced to balance rendition and download speed. Click on any image to see it 2X bigger. The originals are the usual high quality Leica images.
