I’m in the process of scanning negatives from a long time ago. I’m working on 1997 now (20 years ago) – unfortunately I haven’t been consistent about record dates so 1997 is generally all that I know. I’m going to be posting these occasionally. Here’s one from Bali.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – I walked up the East River today in my commute home from midtown, shooting with my Leica Monochrom and 35mm Summicron Asph. lens. This is a great, classic focal length on a Leica. Not much going on on the East River though.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – We saw and apartment on the Lower East Side that our daughter is interested in buying; then spent and hour in the office; then walked home via the East River and the Vinegar Factory. All the while carrying (and occasionally shooting with my medium format Leica S2). Have I told you that I hate my daily workout on an elliptical machine. Well I do. It’s boring. I only do it because its preferable to instant death from a cardiac problem, but just barely. So I’ve decided to try to get my daily exercise by walking everywhere, wearing a doodad on my wrist that monitors my activity to make sure that I’m getting enough. We’ll try this for a few months to see how it works.
Images from the walk along the river, all with the Leica S2 and 70mm lens.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – I dropped Francesca off at Hospital for Special Surgery to get the bones in her foot screwed back together. carrying my Leica Monochrom and a 50 mm Summilux lens. Remember this thing records only black and white and offers more resolution and better high ISO performance than the Leica M9.

On this day one year ago: Pizza. a lonely guy moment.
