MANHATTAN – A flat day at home after yesterday’s field trip. Shooting with the Sony 85mm f2.0 lens, which is lovely.

Day 3226 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

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.

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.

Pepsi sign

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.

MANHATTAN – I made a pilgrimage to The Cloisters, a branch of the Metropolitan Museum in upper Manhattan today. It’s most famous for its Unicorn Tapestries but I actually trekked here to catch up with the Northern outpost of a Met show on Catholicism and fashion. Sorry for the big post – I was busy for a change.

MANHATTAN – A dreary day enlivened by a visit to Francesca and Derek to count Oliver’s fingers and toes. Not really in the zone for photography.

Day 3223 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life (a palindrome!).

WASHINGTON CONNECTICUT – I’m here a day earlier that usual on account of our poker group’s regular game (which takes place roughly every other month). Shot with my Sony a7rii. The eye focus feature of this camera nailed focus 100% of the time in challenging light.

Day 3220 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

On this day seven years ago (day 663): Another camera I no longer own. This one is an Alpa with a Phase One IQ 180 back.
