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.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – I took a walk today in Midtown in the rain and captured 432 Park Avenue, the Nordstrom Tower, which for now will be the tallest residential structure in the world. There are various points of view on this, with some feeling that it’s a blight on the skyline, and others suggesting that it reflects the continued dynamism of Manhattan. Your choice on this issue.
Day 1,875 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day two years ago (day 1,145): Spin meets Basil, who uncharacteristically is in repose. This violates my long-standing rule against cute kids and dogs or other pets on this forum, so I’m taking the position that his is actually a picture of the vase in the background, which is from Spin in Shanghai, even though it is out of focus.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – Well . . . remember those meetings that I wrote about over the weekend? They’re now. I managed to slip out for a half hour to shoot around midtown, so here you go. Nothing earth shaking here, just lucky to have some images.
Day 1,859 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – I strapped my Carl Zeiss 16mm lens onto my Monochrome today. This sense is really wide and has major charisma. It allows me to make ok images of mundane subjects. More on lenses later this week.
Day 1,846 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – This is more like it. I had some time today at last to get in the moment and try to find my photo mojo. The results were ok – I’ve actually had some trouble editing September 19 so I’m presenting multiple images.
Day 1,800 of one picture every day for the rest of my life. 1,800! Fancy that.
On this day three years ago (day 704): Crane at Hong Kong container terminal.
