NEW YORK NEW YORK – Walking through the reception area in our offices I spotted a lovely composition made by the sun and shadows on a piece of art and furniture. I ran for my camera, took a couple of shots studying the composition and called it my image for the day. One of the better images recently, so I guess it is possible to get into the moment when I’m busy if there is actually something to see. When I uploaded the images to process them I was surprised to find that a random exposure that I took in the morning just to see if the camera was working was actually kind of interesting. This is in the category of “purse art” – images taken at random the way a mobile phone sometimes dials from a purse – that I have explored before. Both images with my 1958 dual range summicron (a completely charming lens) and my Leica Monochrom.

Landscape Out my window Work

BOSTON MASSACHUSETTS – My monthly trip to Boston is jam-packed this month. Ugly weather. I decided not to go out to shoot, so I shot a four frame stitch out my hotel window using my laptop case to try to suppress reflections in the glass of the window, which doesn’t open. Nice looking construction site. Taken with my Leica Monochrom and 50mm dual range summicron lens.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Well here I am in my office with my new Nex-7 camera and a Leica 35mm Summciron v.4 lens, the “bokeh king” (“let’s strap the king onto the new camera and see what happens”). So here’s my Lava Lamp. The photograph in the background (from the Jim Dow courthouse series) is out of focus and the bokeh looks pretty smooth – score another win for the king. Click through the bokeh link if you don’t have any idea of what I’m talking about. Anyway, here’s the Lava Lamp:

NEW YORK NEW YORK – There’s a lot going on in the iPhone photo world. Here for example is a site that does an iPhoto every day and reviews apps and the like: the modern iphotographer. Really useful source on apps. I’m sitting here looking at my iPhone 4G. It’s got 13 camera apps. Most cost $1.99. Or less. I’ve sorted out six post processing apps that I like or at least wish that I could master, and six photo information apps that I use when I’m shooting other cameras. This is fun, sort of productive and a real eye-opener. You’ll see a lot more of these over the next few weeks.

This one is an iPhone video still taken at a lunch meeting and processed with PhotoWizard that let me do the center focus thing and grunge it up a bit. there are lots and lots of photo grunge apps. Evidently everyone wants to be a hipster. I can move my visual self to Bushwick without actually having to move there. Cool.
