NEW YORK NEW YORK – I’ve been experimenting with longer lenses recently (basically working my way through my inventory of less-used lenses), shooting a 90mm elmarit today and shooting multiple images and stitching when I want to shoot wide, which is often. The large stitches produce very detailed, lovely files.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – More super wide. I’m cycling through my very wide lenses confirming to myself that I’ve still got my wide angle mojo. Today it was the Leica 21mm Super-Elmar, a super lens.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Egregiously wide today. I was out and about with my Carl Zeiss 15mm lens which is really wide and a handful to handle. The lens requires great pains to shoot level to avoid radically weird vertical ones. This means that there is a lot of foreground which one handles by cropping to square. Just think of this as a square format lens.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I met a friend (actually Maria’s godson) for lunch on the West Side today and walked home across Central Park. It was that “grazing light” moment on CPW so I concentrated on building facades. This happens every sunny day but sometimes – like today – it works out better than others.
