NEW YORK NEW YORK – A beautiful, clear, but very cold day. A nice day to photograph Manhattan and get numb fingers and toes in the process. I’m continuing to work well in black and white – the photo-a-day-for-the-rest-of-my-life project has really helped me achieve greater clarity and consistency in my work. Still relying on the Leica Monochrom as my primary camera.
Day 1,597 of at least one picture every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – A cold brisk day for a walk from the Upper East Side to Midtown. Some just ok images, then I ran into a pedestrian 50s era white brick building that was transformed by reflections. Three frames stitched in Photoshop and converted to black and white. One of my favorites for a while. Then later in the day in my office.
Day 1,579 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

On this day three years ago: Film!

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Cold and clear today. Icy. Here’s the Union Club on Park Avenue and steam venting into the very cold air. I didn’t recognize this image in my first pass editing the day’s work. I came back to it in desperation, but it came out quite well. It’s the image that I was looking for shooting steam vents.
Taken with my Leica Monochrom and 50mm Summilux.
This is my 1,567th day of my daily photo blog.
On this day one year ago: Basil Charles.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – This is a day of pre-holiday running around, so my head is not into the visual. My eyes are unengaged. Shopping lists abound. This was a day for my Leica Monochrom and 1959 Dual Range Summicron lens. I shot only at f2.0 today where this lens has a somewhat lower contrast signature. Here are a couple of “look ups”.
On this day last year: Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church.
