MANHATTAN – The Leica M10-P arrived today! I charged up the battery, strapped on my APO-Summicron 50mm lens (which I call the Luxochron – one of the lenses I didn’t sell) and went out to shoot some familiar territory. It’s great to be back shooting with a rangefinder – the frame lines really do change the way you see. I’ll be spending the next month or so getting familiar with this camera. The first image is a three frame stitch.
Day 3246 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this date seven years ago (day 689): tree line Warren CT shot seven years ago with my medium format Phase One camera (subsequently sold). I’ve re-edited this image, completely re-imagining it.
LONG ISLAND CITY NEW YORK – I spent a good part of the day in Long Island City, the area in Queens just across from Randalls Island, shooting around the Pepsi sign. I was there seven or eight years ago when the area was a garbage strewn tidal mudflat. Now it’s a lovely waterfront park with luxury high rises with commanding views of Manhattan. All taken with my Sony A7riii.
Day 3225 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
Just another Manhattan skyline but I’ve been shooting 432 Park Avenue (the needle building in the center of the image) whenever I see it.
We’ll here you have it: color! I wasn’t able to make this image work in black and white – the grays all merged – and I like the angle so I’ve departed from my B&W only policy, for the first time in years.
On this date four years ago (day 1764 of one photo every day): Mallorca
