MANHATTAN – Still shooting wide. A poor day for me visually – I had trouble getting into the moment.

On this date last year (day 2777 of one photo every day): Bokeh again. Shot last year with a Leica Q, a camera that I owned briefly and didn’t care for. It has a fixed 28mm lens, actually an excellent lens, but a focal length that I don’t care for because it’s the equivalent of an iPhone perspective and is accordingly “common”. As you will see the lens’s bokeh is slightly edgy.

MANHATTAN – Another day shooting real wide with my new 12-24 Sony G lens. One issues shooting cityscape or landscape with a very wide lens is the following: the lens really needs to be level or the perspective gets weird. That generally means that there is too much foreground – half the frame filled with the ground. The solutions are to crop to square, cropping the foreground out, or as I’ve done today, find something to fill the foreground. Working wide results in a lot of near-far images.

MANHATTAN NEW YORK – We didn’t got to Warren this weekend because we needed the time here to get sorted into our daughter’s apartment, where we’re staying while the work on ours is being completed. Just ok on the photography front.

VARANASI (BENARIS) – We had a long day here, visiting the great Sarnath Stupa, a monument to Buddha marking the site where he delivered his first sermon. Then two trips on the Ganges, one in daylight and one after dark, with intermittent walking it between. This is the holiest of all Indian cities, for Hindus comparable to Jerusalem. I have many images so I’m posting a gallery for the day.
