NEW YORK NEW YORK – Cold and clear today. Icy. Here’s the Union Club on Park Avenue and steam venting into the very cold air. I didn’t recognize this image in my first pass editing the day’s work. I came back to it in desperation, but it came out quite well. It’s the image that I was looking for shooting steam vents.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – My college classmates here in New York annually celebrate everyone in the class’s birthday (on a arbitrary date). I’m part of a subgroup that brings better than OK wines. This year one of our colleagues brought four bottles of ’83 Lafitte. I brought a couple of magnums of ’97 Chablis “Les Clos”. One of our number served as our host at the Brook, a midtown club. Here’s a silver cup on our table given annually, judging from the inscriptions, for some achievement or other. I generally avoid in-focus people at affairs like this lest they be judged harshly for hanging out in such a stuffy-looking environment. This with my Leica Monochrom and 50mm Luxochron lens.
