As is tradition, the bride and groom exchanged gifts prior to the wedding. While Matthew purchased Emily the watch that she had always wanted. Emily commissioned a custom ring for Matthew’s shooting hand (as opposed to for his wedding band). This one of a kind band has the depth of field scale from his favorite lens, the .95 Noctilux. On the sides, the ring features both Matthew’s name and The Leica Guy moniker on one side, and the Lens information including name, filter size, and serial number on the other.

The Earth and the Moon

The NASA space probe JUNO is currently on a 445 million mile journey to explore Jupiter. Now a month into its mission and six million miles away, it’s taken a picture of the Earth and the moon.

Feel lonely out there?

As Ian O’Neill writes at Discovery:

It’s when I see photos like this, everything instantly snaps into perspective. To paraphrase Sagan, everything we’ve ever known and loved exists on that small dot. Everything.
