Street Photography – Downtown Leesburg

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Olympus PEN-F + Leica DG SUMMILUX 25 f/1.4

Amy and I decided to go out Friday night for date night in downtown Leesburg and I had one place in mind for drinks and food: Delerium.

The restaurant was surprisingly not packed and the lack of crowd in the bar was refreshing to see since the first time I have visited this spot was when they first opened a location in Leesburg and it was absolutely packed.

We made some friends at the restaurant that also happened to be Penn State alumni. We’re 6-0 right now at the time of this writing so I’m looking forward to an amazing season.

Thing of note here: Try out their red vinegar fries and thank us later.

After dinner and drinks, Amy and I decided to go out for a stroll for some street photography.

Despite being dark, the Leica DG 25 f/1.4 performed brilliantly with very little AF hunting

The Olympus PEN-F’s Mono Profile #2 never fails to impress with its contrast

In this same alleyway, I noticed some shadows on the brick wall and how the light played with the safety handles of a walkway.

I thought the lighting was very cool.

After a couple of blocks, we stopped by a local bar that looked interesting.

They even had a live band playing.

The bokeh is not the creamiest but the lens is sharp and rendering is fantastic

This photo was taken by Amy – it looks pretty good no?

I’ll try to upload more photos as I go through them.
