WINGDALE NEW YORK – I drove over here today to drop Alexander off at the train station. This little hamlet is the home of the Harlem Valley Psychiatric Center, a vast property built by the State for the treatment of the mentally ill, which was closed in 1994. It’s genuinely spooky.
Day 3230 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this date four years ago (day 1404 of one photo every day): Rioja
MANHATTAN – My hat inventory needs some help – I loose hats and summer Panama’s get tatty after a few years of use. So . . . I went to JJ Hat Center on lower Fifth Avenue to stock up. Since I don’t do selfies you’ll have to guess at what i bought.
Day 3206 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
MANHATTAN – Still shooting wide. A poor day for me visually – I had trouble getting into the moment.
Day 3142 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
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.
