I am always drawn to places that has a rich heritage and vibrant energies. I’m curious how the subtleties are presented that we as travellers might not easily see. Just like Penang, Malaysia with its rich multicultural legacy and Melbourne, Australia having a wide spectrum of urban and natural landscapes. Both places have strong contrasts in traditions, people, geography and light. And to capture these subliminal moments, it’s good to have a camera that is both swift and concise. This is what the Leica CL can do, and does it superbly.

Photographing with the Leica CL enables me to compose my shots with more spontaneity. The amazing improvements to the viewfinder provides a close representation of what my eyes see, and the CL successfully delivers that special rendition of colours and light with the legendary Leica look.
