NEW YORK – You’ve seen a lot of my work around the plaza in front of the Seagram Building and the Racquet and Tennis Club: Mies meets Stanford White. Of course cater-corner from the Seagram Building is DOM’s Lever House. Here it is backlit.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Here we are. On Manhattan. Working. Like everyone else here. Captured Lever House, one of my favorite corners in New York, on my way home from dinner. Ditto a more intimate view of the Seagrams Building. Shooting my Leica Monochrom with the ISO cranked up a bit to permit hand-holding at night. Two frames stitched in the case of Lever House.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Well . . . here we are another year past 9/11. I was sitting at my desk in midtown in a corner office with a southwest view that included the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building and the World Trade Center towers. I turned and saw: smoke pouring out of one of the towers, the second plane hit, and both towers collapse. Our son, Alexander, was working downtown and was one of the people how sought refuge in a building lobby as the streets were engulfed in asbestos-laced dust. It was hours before we made contact with him.

Traffic is a total snarl today. I stayed in midtown near my office photographing a new installation at Lever House with my Leica Monochrom and Luxxochron. Actually, this isn’t a completed installation, just the construction of some new walls to display a new installation, but who would know.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – A day for abstractions. I fit photography around practicing law today, finding mostly abstractions. Shot with my Leica Monochrom and 35mm Summicron version IV lens (aka “the bokeh king”). Below you will see a long exposure from a taxi moving up Park Avenue, a “Where’s Waldo?” looking painting in an office and a piece of sculpture at Lever House.
