MANHATTAN – We had another heavy snow storm today – winter seems to be a never-ending phenomenon this year. I was feeling centered and symmetrical today. Images shot with my Sony A7rii converted to monochrome (bay removing the camera’s Bayer filter).
Day 3079 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – I spent some time today shooting around the Queensborough Bridge on the Manhattan side. There’s a lot of visual interest going on here – this is a spot where I’ve shot a dozen times. All images were taken with my Leica Monochrom and 50mm Summicron FLE lens. This is the equipment that I shoot best with – I can actually get along with one camera and one lens (despite owning multiple bodies and a lot of lenses). I shoot with a three stop neutral density filter which lets me shoot this lens wide open in daylight. The chimney image is three frames stitched; the look up image is two frames. The stitching technique lets me use the 50mm as if it were a wide angle zoom.
Day 2,680 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day last year (day 2,314): Reservoir I had been watching for this shot for years. It’s one of my favorites from last year.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – This is another very cold day with nice light. I’m posting three images, not because they are all terrific, but because I couldn’t decide. In general I try to explore eight or ten image ideas every day, which results in 30-50 images as I walk around each subject trying on different angles and framings. Editing is a serious chore.
Day 1,957 of one photo every day for the rest of my life.
