NEW YORK NEW YORK – Out and about today with my Leica Monochrom and a very special lens: a Leica 35mm Summicron version IV that was manufactured in 1982, the so-called “bokeh king”. This lens does indeed have fairly creamy bokeh (the character of the out of focus portions of images) so I shot subjects that provided an opportunity to demonstrate bokeh. You may remember that I’m reviewing my whole lens collection on the subject of bokeh.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – The highlight of my day was a visit to our doctor’s office for my annual echo cardiogram. There was nice light on Park Avenue.

On this day two years ago (day 1,979): Kitchen I was definitely hard up last year – reduced to shooting a vase of tulips.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – On my walk down Park Avenue to an early morning breakfast meeting I looked up. Later in the morning I caught a reflection of the AT&T building. Both taken with my Leica Monochrom and 50mm Summicron FLE lens; the second image is three frames stitched.
