NEW YORK NEW YORK – We made a pilgrimage to the Japan Society (near the UN) for the brilliant Sugimoto show, the Gates of Heaven, and caught a relatively new vest-pocket part on the way. We caroled on Park Avenue in the evening at the Brick Church ceremony lighting the Christmas trees on Park Avenue.

Day 2,971 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – My Sony A7riii arrived yesterday – the latest and greatest “mirrorless” camera. It’s been highly rated by reviewers in terms of usability and image quality. I’ll be moving into to it and using it for the next month to see if it meets expectations. Today I had some walk around time with my Leica Monochrom.

Day 2.969 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – My sister-in-law, Francesca Barra, has produced a documentary film based on Norman Lewis’s book, Naples ’44. Here it is opening here at the Film Forum. I took my Leica Monochrom, which was the wrong choice of equipment for this event so the results were disappointing.

Day 2967 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – A film gallery today. I’m shooting with a late Leica M3 – I plan on pursuing film with a Leica M3. I also have an early model M3 that is in for an overhaul – I’ll sell one of these cameras when the early model comes back, depending on which I like best.

Today I’m shooting a very high acutance, essentially grainless, film called Adox. The results are remarkable – the downside is that it’s rated at ISO 20 but is closer to ISO 12, so it’s full sunlight or a tripod. The clear base also has a nasty curl, making it a challenge to scan.

Anyway, here’s a gallery of film shots.

Day 2,966 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
