    I got to know his work a few years ago and fell in love with it. Of the ones you showed, Snow is my favourite, but I really love it when he mixes colour street and abstract shapes shots and comes up with something magical.

    This was my take on him a few years back.

    It certainly was an enjoyable exercise trying to emulate his work.

    Hi Andre,
    What a coincidence. I was judging at a club recently & mentioned Saul Leiter. The reference seemed to excite some interest. They are a very photo-savvy group and many had seen the BBC film about Saul.
    Greetings,

    Another coincidence: Saul Leiter's 'Hands, circa 1954' is mirrored by BrettWayne Price's shot 'Hands, Leica M, Nashville' on the I Love My Leica (ILML) web-site.

    The web is making it an even smaller world and I much appreciate the feedback.
    The "Hands" and "Sailors" shots are my own favorites.
    Just "seeing" that Hands shot and quickly taking it is a talent I long to emulate.
    Regards,
    Andre
