BROOKLYN NEW YORK – I took the Q Train to the end of the line today and explored Brighton Beach on foot with film (!). I’m shooting Tri-X in a Leica M7 with vintage lenses, including version 1 of the 35mm Summicron (from the late 1950s). Overall a good day.

On this day eight years ago (day 2): For rent Eight years ago was just post financial crisis so there ware a lot of for rent signs on store fronts. We’re seeing for rent signs again, this time because bricks and mortar retailers are being driven out of business by online stores.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – Continuing with Sony A7Rii week. I went out today with the Sony 70-200mm f2.8 zoom on the camera. What a load. For street use you look like you’re equipped to cover the Superbowl. a very big lens but marvelous. It’s actually an improvement over the Canon lens of similar description, which I’ve owned, and referred to as the “miraculous drain pipe”. A very high quality lens but hardly practical as a walk around.
