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 – 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.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I’m flying to London this evening. As a travel day this is rare as I actually had a chance to capture some images as I went about my day – travel days are usually a disaster for me from a photographic standpoint. Here are a few from close to home.

Day 1,737 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – More work with the really wide lens, this time on Park Avenue in the 50s. For the first image below I shot level in portrait orientation and cropped the foreground out, resulting in a square format. This is a common technique shooting very wide – the need to level almost always results in too much foreground. I grew up shooting 2 ¼ inch square so this isn’t a burden for me – I tend to see in squares anyway. I shot the same tree looking up a bit and it was much less successful at every level. The commonplace look up and view of GCT demonstrate this lens’s lovely rendering.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I ran into my friend Tom Barry in front of the Colony Club; I found myself on the sidewalk in front of the Ferrari store on Park Avenue, where a 1961 California Spyder (perhaps the most beautiful car ever made) was parked next to the curb; and I found myself on Sixth Avenue looking up. Hard to decide so here you go with all three, all taken with my Leica Monochrom and a 50mm Luxochron lens.

On this day last year (day 1,336): Big red thing. At least it was red last year. In light of my new commitment to all things black and white I’ve translated the image to grayscale for the look back. If you want to see it in color you can click through to the link to last year.

NEW YORK NY and ANNISQUAM MA – We started this morning in meetings in midtown where I had a chance to catch a moment of transcendent light on Park Avenue. Followed by a long drive to Anniscquam and a pre-wedding party. What a day.
