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.

LONDON – A dullish day. Too hot with a high overcast sky. Not really great for cityscapes or anything else for that matter. Here are a couple from Holland Park.

NEW YORK NY and ANNISQUAM MA – We started this morning in meetings in midtown where I had a chance to catch a moment of transcendent light on Park Avenue. Followed by a long drive to Anniscquam and a pre-wedding party. What a day.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – We had a book party today for our Swedish friend Dag Ahlander, who has written a book of advice on living one’s life as a “retiree”. I used quotes here because Dag has been in constant motion since he left the Swedish diplomatic service. Here’s Dag, taken with my Leica Monochrom.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Well, today is my birthday. I don’t like making a big deal of these anniversaries so we had a small family dinner out at Maialino, Danny Meyer’s displaced Roman Tratoria on Gramercy Park. I caught more tulips (i’ll soon get over this) in the rain, and then Alexander and Baby V at dinner. It was dark at Maialino so I brought my f.95 Noctilux and of course my Leica Monochrom.

WARREN CONNECTICUT and NEW YORK NEW YORK – A tale of good light and not so good light today. There were 15 minutes of profoundly beautiful light this afternoon in Connecticut. It was fleeting, as the sun dodged in an out of clouds. I shot what was at hand, a large tree, a mundane subject hereabout, with my Leica Luxochron 50mm lens wide open to blur the background. I ended up stitching three frames. Then later in the evening a dinner parter for a friend of long standing (not pictured here). I only shoot with available light which at dinners is often poor for portraiture. Anyway, here you go.
