Portrait of a myth: Melusina

September 01, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Walking down by the Alzette river in Luxembourg you can easily have a pleasant encounter with a legendary beauty, Melusina, the mermaid of the Granduchy, symbol of love.

Few minutes before the sunset, I was chilling around the Grund district, with my Leica M 262 and i took some pictures to this beautiful model, attracted by the nice shape of the statue and the contrast between the green surrounding and the vibrant violet of the mermaid.

To make the pictures more interesting, luckily, at some point a young couple sat on the other side of the river for few minutes and i took the opportunity to include them in some shots, to make a kind of connection with the statue and the love story. Nice isn't.

Again, the two Leica lenses (Summicron M 35mm f2 ASPH and Summicron M 50mm f2) performed very very well, with nice contrasts and details. I'm more and more into this beautiful system, after 3 months of usage i may say i'm fully happy with it!

Now space to the pictures!
