BOSTON MASSACHUSETS – Here for my usual monthly meetings. These long days give me good light in the early morning. Shot with my black and white modified Sony and a Leica 50mm Summicron Asp. lens.

MANHATTAN – I’m now shooting regularly with my Sony A7rii that has been converted to black and white imaging by removing its Bayer filter. This plus some specialized image processing effectively double the resolution of this camera to 84 megs -far into medium format land. This only works with the very best lenses – lenses that perform well at 42 megs resolution don’t necessarily look great with resolution doubled. The Zeiss 25mm Batis lens that I’m shooting with today is more than up to the task. More on these topics as I develop more experience with this camera.

COLLEGE POINT NEW YORK – College point is actually a neighborhood in Queens. It’s out beyond the end of the subway system. It’s a finger of land tucked between the Whitestone Bridge and flushing Bay; Laguardia Airport is just across Flushing Bay. It should have grand exposures to the bay and the East River but large industrial complexes and condo developments generally cut off access to the water. Anyway we had good light so this is what it looks like.

MANHATTAN – Shooting wide with my Sony A7Riii and lovely Zeiss 25mm lens. Not much going on today in my life. The phenomenal Sony sensor let me recover highlights in this image from outside my office – highlights that would have been totally blown in most other cameras that I’ve ever owned.

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.
