NEW YORK NEW YORK – Self-explanitory? I don’t post many pictures of recognizable people here. Based on feedback on my Twitter feed (where I now have 66,000 followers) pictures of people, even moderately famous people, are of limited interest to my online audience. This may be because I’m better at places and things than people, but some objectively good images of people have been largely ignored online. Still . . . I post the images that I like whatever the subject. Just to make sure that I don’t loose your interest I’ve also included a second image for the day, a water tank in nice light.

Day 1,910 of one photograph a day for the rest of my life.

Taken with my Noctilux lens:

NEW YORK NEW YORK – If you’ve been following this site for a while you may have noticed that I’ve made some minor changes. We’ve made pictures a bit small to speed page loading, and have generally made the site more robust. Keeping this thing going is surprisingly similar to a job.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – We’re here this weekend, unusually. We had some social commitments in New York which very much tied us up. I fooled around again with my Leica 280 mm R lens on my Leica T. Here’s a close up of Maria. Again, this combination works very well.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – We stayed in New York this weekend to attend Baby Victoria’s first birthday party. This has been a week of portentious anniversaries. I have a rule against posting cute kids but today will be an exception.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – While waiting on the 53rd Street Station for the E train (which is depressingly far under ground) I heard the sound of “Amazing Grace” being played on a bagpipe. I walked the length of the platform to investigate and found, rather than a ruddy Scot campaigning for succession, a wan, very sick-looking, young man. Here he is.
