NEW YORK NEW YORK – Spring is arriving. This is a tough time of year to photograph cityscapes around here. The city is flamboyantly in bloom. The street crud from the winter has been completely cleaned up. It’s hard to take a picture that doesn’t look like a cut in a White Flower Farm catalogue. Tedious. The temptation to shoot big flowering trees is irresistible. I’m fight this by sticking with black and white and using selective focus. Here are some tulips from the Park Avenue mall.
Day 1,657 on one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day four years ago (day 196): Chrysler Building with the UN Secretariat Building in the foreground. This was originally in color – I subsequently did a fairly aggressive black and white conversion, which I like much better.
