NEW YORK NEW YORK – I’m flying to London this evening. As a travel day this is rare as I actually had a chance to capture some images as I went about my day – travel days are usually a disaster for me from a photographic standpoint. Here are a few from close to home.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – This is the final day of my one week forced march with my now less-new 15mm Zeiss lens. Today I’m exploring the lens’s “bokeh”, the character of the out of focus portions of images. This is actually fairly difficult since with a 15mm lens not much is out of focus. So I got really close to some flowers (8 inches or so) and took advantage of the cloudy day to shoot wide open at f/2.8, with a bunch of stuff in the background. The answer: this lens has lovely, creamy Leica-style bokeh (typical of lenses from the Walter Mandler era) with gentle focus to out of focus transitions. Very nice if you can find a situation to use it.
