NEW YORK NEW YORK – I shot my Eleventh Avenue project today. Based on the yesterday’s scouting I started at 11:00 and worked through 3:30, taking a break for lunch during the period when the sun was directly overhead. I shot with my Alpa Max, 48mm Schneider/ALPA Apo-Helvetar (the Swiss seem to prefer long names for their lenses) and Phase One IQ 180 back 28 exposures, two per block on both sides of the street, from 40th Street to 47th Street. Here’s a sample. The approach is dead frontal documentation.
On this day last year: Rain.
