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 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.

Day 1,695 of one photo every day for the rest of my life.

On this day three years ago (day 599): Chrysler again. Originally shot and posted in color. I recently reprocessed it as black and white which I prefer.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I’ve been thinking about what it is to photograph landscape (whether urban or otherwise). Let me describe the experience. There comes a moment when you physically experience some remarkable aspect of the light. For me the world seems to grow quiet and I work without thinking, intuitively. Time seems suspended. I reach this state of mind on those rare occasions when the light is very special and combines with the scenery in front of me to create a heightened sense of reality. It’s good to have a camera in hand when this happens. I’m not wildly successful seeking these moments out with a tripod.

there was one of those moments this morning in the space between the Seagrams Building and the Racquet and Tennis Club.
