NEW YORK NEW YORK – Today is a little bit of an embarrassment. I actually took a picture of the clock in Grand Central Terminal, one of the most photographed objects in the world. Not even at a very interesting angle – I’m going to try again with a longer lens.

Day 2,904 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – A Manhattan miscellany. The third image is the ribs that I started yesterday cooking in sous Vide water baths. They will cook at 142 degrees C for 36 hours, and finished on a Green Egg on Friday. Shot with my Leica Monochrom.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – The magic hour comes at different times of day here than in real landscape (where the magic hour is just before sunset and just after sunrise). At the classical magic hours it’s still dark at street level here. The Manhattan magic hour comes at mid morning when the sun is high enough to reflect off of buildings providing lovely dapple light. Here you go. All shot with my Leica Monochrom.

Day 2,671 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK. Out on the Park Avenue divider with some newly installed sculpture by Santiago Calatrava, who I think of primarily as an architect. Really interesting futurist work.

NEWBURGH NEW YORK – I drove up here today to meet with a friend, Luke Pontifell, who founded and owns Thornwillow Press, a printing business that specializes in beautiful books and perfect stationary = Luke is unique in the United States in keeping these arts alive (and in fact vibrant). I made the trip to photograph Luke’s plant and to discuss doing a gravure edition of some of my images.

Newburgh is one of the upstate towns that feels like it’s seen better days. Actually much better days. It’s only about 60 miles north of New York City and is located on a bluff overlooking the Hudson River so it’s full of potential, but it’s economically depressed, but it may be on the verge of being rediscovered (for example Dia Beacon is just across the Newburgh Bridge, a 10 minute drive from Luke’s plant.

A sensational day. I haven’t been able to edit it down to one image, so apologies for the clutter.

Day 1,979 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

On this day five years ago (day 153): Ca$h for your Warhol. A pawn shop with a sense of humor? This image was mistakenly originally posted as March 16, 2010. It’s actually March 17. There are a bunch of images that actually were taken on March 17 so my string is unbroken.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – This is a really heavy day in the real work world. In other words, long hours at the computer. Here’s an image of my personal habitat for the day, taken with my baby Sony RX100 II. This was moment of rest: my hands weren’t actually on the keyboard.
