NEW YORK NEW YORK – This is another very cold day with nice light. I’m posting three images, not because they are all terrific, but because I couldn’t decide. In general I try to explore eight or ten image ideas every day, which results in 30-50 images as I walk around each subject trying on different angles and framings. Editing is a serious chore.
Day 1,957 of one photo every day for the rest of my life.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – From a visual standpoint the recent run of savage weather here has created a real winter playground, but I’m getting tired of it. Call it windchill fatigue. I tried to shake things up today by digging out my superwide 15mm Carl Zeiss superlens. It’s ok but doesn’t do much to hide my disgust with my surroundings.
Day 1,951 of one photo a day for the rest of my life.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – This is an embarrassment. Too many images. I put the lovely little Leica 35mm Summicron (current version) on my camera today and went out to upper Fifth Avenue in excellent late afternoon light. It was one of those days where everywhere I pointed my camera there was something of interest (at least to me). I ended up with a bunch of full frontal images of buildings, generally made up of multiple images stitched, and some park images. You might ask why I didn’t edit the images down a bit. Well I actually have. thanks for your patience in working through this maze of stuff.
Day 1,912 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day two years ago (day 1,182): Sunnylands. A pilgrimage to this mid-century icon in Palm Desert.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – Here is another exercise in looking up. Neither my best nor my worst. Typical nice winter light on Park Avenue. I’ve decided to give my 28mm Summicron lens a little bit of exercise. It’s a bit too wide for this style of shooting which depends on stitching multiple images to achieve large-format resolution; this type of image has very little impact if it’s small.
Day 1,908 of one photo a day for the rest of my life.
On this day two years ago (day 1,178): Santa Monica Pier. A harmless exercise in street art.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – I’m actually writing this on Christmas day – remember that I post with about a week’s delay to give me some breathing room for editing. I found a number of good images today but only one of them, the facade of the Waldorf Astoria hotel, is even vaguely Christmas-oriented so I’ll lead with the Waldorf. There was odd (for here) diffuse rather Flemish-looking sunlight today which gave familiar sights softer features.
Day 1,890 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
