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.

THE BRONX NEW YORK – I had a lunch meeting in Greenwich today and I decided to drive back to Manhattan on Route 1, the Boston Post Road, rather than the highways. Route 1 becomes Fordham Road in the Bronx, and then the Grand Concourse. Today’s images are from the Grand Concourse.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I did some shopping and organization for our trip to Spain today, but found a few hours in the afternoon to explore Central Park. Nothing terrific here.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I went hunting for images in the neighborhood today with a longish lens (a 90mm) and found a couple of odd angles. Long lenses are a challenge for me; I much more often shoot wide. The fire escapes are two frames stitched.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Today I actually took exactly one picture today: in an alley on 93rd Street. I’ve got a few other alley shots from earlier dates so maybe there is a thread that I should pursue. Or maybe not. Reviewing the past almost five years of images I’ve learned that August 1 isn’t a terrific day for me in terms of photography.
