BROOKLYN NEW YORK – I took the Q Train to the end of the line today and explored Brighton Beach on foot with film (!). I’m shooting Tri-X in a Leica M7 with vintage lenses, including version 1 of the 35mm Summicron (from the late 1950s). Overall a good day.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I walked around midtown with a new lens today, the wonderful Leica 90mm f4.0 macro. It’s light and compact and a sensational performer. It’s not my most used focal length so I found myself stitching to achieve my normal point of view.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Vacant lot at Fifth Avenue and 43rd Street. Shot with my Leica Monochrom and 50mm Summicron ASPH lens (the so-called “luxochron”).

October 25 has been a very good date for my photo project for the last eight years – there are images that I like every year so I had trouble making a selection. I finally settled on an abstraction from this date last year (day 2,567), and abstraction in Brittany: Brittany.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Out and about with my Leica Monochrom camera. I shoot a lot of vacant lots in Manhattan. Not because they are vacant but because the absence of a building allows a perspective that is otherwise impossible. There are a lot of empty stores for rent on Lexington Avenue – evidence of changing consumer behavior as we move toward online buying.

On this date eight years ago (day 8): Gold Beach Oregon – I’ve re-edited this work.
