Well, after being tremendously busy (actually non-stop/no vacation for two 
years kind of busy) with a technology start-up company developing 
electronically focusing lenses, I have some time to photograph again.  The 
company sadly declared bankruptcy prior to getting the Gen 2 product to 
market.  It would have changed the way we see with glasses.  Hopefully some 
entity will pick up the pieces and continue the development of analog to 
digital lenses for your glasses.  

So I went on safari with my wonderful wife to Tanzania.   I took about 
11,000 images and video with just about 250GB of data.  Sadly, it was not 
Leica gear.  My M9 stayed at home this trip.  Very dusty environment.  
Mostly used a 100-400mm IS L Canon zoom on a 5DMk3 and SL1 bodies.  Going on 
safari is a life changing experience.  Riding in open top Land Cruisers 
during the day and sleeping in tents in the Serengeti at night will change 
your perspective  I have posted five images.  

Now that I'm in the search mode for another global position, I'll post more 
frequently.  I missed this community.  If life gives a lemon, make some 
lemonade.  Comments welcome.  I hope I got the links correct for the images.

Be well,
