NEW YORK NEW YORK – I spent a few hours today in good light shooting my Sony Alpha 7rii with thee excellent native Carl Zeiss lens. I actually like this combination a greet deal. I have it set up so that the view through the viewfinder is in black and white. Of course I have to covert the files to black and white in post, which adds significantly to processing time. The 42 meg files bring my older iMac in Connecticut to its knees. Overall a good day.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Hmmm. Today was a bit of a rush. I got a few shots off, including more of the new Santiago Calatrava sculpture on the Park Avenue dividers. I shot in roughly the same place exactly two years ago.

NEW YORK NEW YORK. Out on the Park Avenue divider with some newly installed sculpture by Santiago Calatrava, who I think of primarily as an architect. Really interesting futurist work.
