NEW YORK NEW YORK – Another Friday evening here – this time for Francesca’s birthday. I shoot with my Leica Monochrom and f.95 Noctilux lens in situations like this. The light was very poor so an evening of shooting yields few keepers.

CAMP PENDLETON CALIFORNIA – An interesting couple of days. I’m here for a reunion of my Marine Corps officers Basic School class – catching up with guys who I last saw in Quantico decades ago. I was most impressed by the fact that the active duty Marines who were our hosts were uniformly polite, respectful and helpful.
