NEW YORK NEW YORK – I spent a few hours today with my Sony A7Riii camera and the lovely (but heavy) Sony f2.8 70-200 zoom, shooting out my window. All handheld. Image stabilization works very well on this camera.

Manhattan New York – Not so interesting an image today – the former Triborough Bridge out my window. I’ve done this before under more interesting circumstances. Like four years ago in the fog with a longer lens.

MANHATTAN NEW YORK – I spent this morning in the vicinity of New York Hospital in a blizzard – a poor day for humans but excellent for photography. All images taken with Sony A7Riii and lovely 25mm f2.0 Carl Zeiss lens.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Much better light in Manhattan than yesterday so I’m feeling a bit better about this project. Shot with my Sony A7Riii and 55mm Zeiss f1.8 lens.  The third image below is three frames stitched, a technique that I use like a zoom lens (to effectively zoom out to wider focal lengths.
