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.

Day 3,004 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

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.

Monday January 1, 2018 New Year’s Day

NEW YORK NEW YORK – We drove back to town on New Years Day. Visually a dull day – an inauspicious start to the New Year.

I’m still shooting my Sony A7Riii. The exercise that I went through a few weeks ago (shooting film and the Sony in parallel and then working out a set of black and white conversion actions in Adobe Lightroom) is a great success – I’m getting very good, film like, black and white out of the process.

Day 3,000 of one photograph every day. That’s right. Starting the New Year at 3,000. I’ve gotten a bit behind on posting because frankly it’s boring – but I have been taking a picture every day.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – We made a pilgrimage to the Japan Society (near the UN) for the brilliant Sugimoto show, the Gates of Heaven, and caught a relatively new vest-pocket part on the way. We caroled on Park Avenue in the evening at the Brick Church ceremony lighting the Christmas trees on Park Avenue.

Day 2,971 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – A film gallery today. I’m shooting with a late Leica M3 – I plan on pursuing film with a Leica M3. I also have an early model M3 that is in for an overhaul – I’ll sell one of these cameras when the early model comes back, depending on which I like best.

Today I’m shooting a very high acutance, essentially grainless, film called Adox. The results are remarkable – the downside is that it’s rated at ISO 20 but is closer to ISO 12, so it’s full sunlight or a tripod. The clear base also has a nasty curl, making it a challenge to scan.

Anyway, here’s a gallery of film shots.
