OVER THE NORTH ATLANTIC – Here we are flying home from our flash trip to Brittany. And the alley behind our building once we got home. And finally East 86th Street, which has an almost tenderloiny vice.

On this day five years ago (day 745): Blizzard – an amazingly heavy blizzard at the end of October. This really contrasts with the lovely, warm late fall that we are having this year.

NEDW YORK NEW YORK – Another one of those days when I just barely made it from a photo-a-day standpoint. Today it was the run up to Thanksgiving that got in the way. I took some photos walking to and from shopping but most were poor, so I settled on in image in our kitchen captured with my Leica Monochrom and 135mm lens.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I shot odds and ends today – first around the house to make sure that I got an image for the day, then from an event on Canal Street. All with my Leica Monochrom.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I’m very busy preparing for a whole series of meetings. My limited time outside today yielded little in the way of images, but there was a moment of amazing light out my window that I managed to capture in two images.

On this day three years ago (day 925): Spring in NY. As I went back through the various April 27s in the past five years I observed that I shot them all in color and they are all flowers. This is what I call the “Spring trap” and I evidently fall into it this time of year. I’ve re-imagined the image from three years ago as black and white. Interestingly the converted files always look a little plasticy, not as authentic as the Leica Monochrom files.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – We’re rushing around preparing for a trip to Paris for a long Easter weekend. Not much time for photography so I shot a vase and flowers at home with my Noctilux f.95 lens, which has a distinctive signature when shot wide open. Here you go.
