NEW YORK NEW YORK – What a crappy day. I could have gone out and captured images in the pouring rain, but I didn’t. Here’s an image of the RFK (nee Triborough) Bridge captured with a very long Leica R lens adapted to my Sony 7Rmii.
By the way, I’ve been putting up two posts a day for a while, catching up from the period when I was in Japan, China and San Francisco. Today I’m officially caught up (only a week behind which his my usual process) so I can go back to posting once a day.
Day 2185 of one photograph a day for the rest of my life.
On this day last year (day 1820): LUNCH. One of my favorite images of last year.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – I took a walk today in Midtown in the rain and captured 432 Park Avenue, the Nordstrom Tower, which for now will be the tallest residential structure in the world. There are various points of view on this, with some feeling that it’s a blight on the skyline, and others suggesting that it reflects the continued dynamism of Manhattan. Your choice on this issue.
Day 1,875 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day two years ago (day 1,145): Spin meets Basil, who uncharacteristically is in repose. This violates my long-standing rule against cute kids and dogs or other pets on this forum, so I’m taking the position that his is actually a picture of the vase in the background, which is from Spin in Shanghai, even though it is out of focus.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – We seem to be vying with Seattle for the foggiest place in the known universe. Yes. It’s foggy today in Connecticut. And four years ago it was foggy on April 26 on Park Avenue. There are lots of pictures of fog that I could have posted today (both current and historical): these were just the best looking ones. All shot with my Leica Monochrom – the perfect camera for the weather.
Day 1,654 of one photo a day for the rest of my life.
On this day four years ago (day 193): More fog. Shot in color but but for the taxis who would know.
