NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Dinner with Gary and Diana Fisketjon.  Photographically there was a lot of interest – the Fisketjons recently moved to a loft on the very top floor of a building in the financial district (next to the New York Fed) that has been converted to residential use.  Out the windows there are marvelous eagle gargoyles and views of lower Manhattan.  I concentrated on the gargoyles (which face outward, so from the apartment we see their backs).  What I learned on editing the pictures is that the backs of gargoyles are no more interesting than the backs of people.  So out of a large group of photos from the evening I selected one of Gary.  Nikon D700 with 50mm f1.4 (my usual night interior kit).
