NEW YORK NEW YORK – More work on “bokeh”, the quality of the out of focus portions of the image. I’m getting lovely bokeh from my Leica 50mm Luxochrom stopped down a stop or two. Wide open it has the “nervous” bokeh typical of highly corrected lenses.

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.
