NEW YORK NEW YORK – I’m approaching the end of three intense months of meetings in my day job. This has been a major distraction from photography (and everything else). As I wind down over the next few weeks I expect to return to a more centered and focused approach to this work. Today I spotted myself on a cylindrical chrome column in a building that I was meeting in. I shot it – of course there was massive distortion. The image is a fish eye in the horizontal dimension and is normal in the vertical dimension. I stretched the horizontal axis in Photoshop to approximate real perspective – at least in the center of the image. Shot with my Leica M9 and the Nocti.

On this day one year ago: Still life. The flowers are from our garden in Connecticut. This was the run-up to a party.
