NEW YORK NEW YORK – Still shooting with the tiny 28mm Summaorn lens, a Leica re-issue of a lens introduced in 1955. It really has rekindled my interest in this focal length, which I’ve been neglecting for a while. Good light in Manhattan (which is covered by dirty snow drifts – the residue of the blizzard) and an image of an image.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – Out with the drone again today. It’s important to get flight time in. Photographically, I prefer the “cherry picker” images to the “Google Earth” images. I’m flying and shooting with a DJI Mavic Pro.

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.
