NEW YORK NEW YORK – I had a surprisingly productive day today walking from 96th Street to the sixties through Riverside Park. Shot with my Leica Monochrom and a 50mm or 90mm lens. Most images are stitches of many frames.

Day 2201 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – This really was a New York New York day. After morning in the office I decided to treat myself so I took the subway to Brooklyn Heights, walked around a bit, ended up in Brooklyn Bridge Park, caught a water taxi, ended up at 46th street and the Hudson River via the Statue of Liberty, walked up the extended Riverside Park to the 79th Street boat basin, and took a taxi home. All in about four hours. I love this place. Both images with my Leica S2 medium format camera and 24mm lens.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I went today with a tripod and my large Alpa, the Alpa Max, to explore Riverside Park and the George Washington Bridge. My start was delayed by personal errand – by the time I got into things the golden light was gone and the light was rathe uninteresting. I’ve posted some examples anyway.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – I’ve decided over the next few weeks to spend more time shooting with my Hasselblad. It’s a terrific tool for landscape, urban or otherwise. It’s poorly adapted for quick shooting in poor light so on days when I’m counting on getting my photograph at an evening event I’ll continue to rely on my Nikon or Panasonic.

Here’s the view straight up on the extension of Riverside Drive South from 72nd Street with my Hasselblad H4D-60 and an HCD35-90 lens at 35mm.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – In the late afternoon I took a walk Riverside Boulevard, the extension of Riverside Drive south from 72nd Street. The street may actually be called Trump Place between 66th Street and 70th Street. I was attracted by an article in the New York Times to the effect that the American Institute of Architects has designated the buildings along here as the 6th ugliest buildings in New York. What I found is that the southern extension of Riverside Park is now mostly completed, and is sensational. I’ll be back there. But for today the entrance to one of the buildings, 100 Riverside Boulevard, not one of the Trump buildings.
