NEW YORK NEW YORK – One way to kill the blahs (at least for me the notorious gear slut) is to try a different camera. My Ricoh GRD IV arrived today. The Ricoh GRD series has a cult following of street shooters. This is a tiny (shirt pocket sized) camera with a fixed 28mm f1.9 lens equivalent that produces very high quality images within its limitations (the small sensor limits you to roughly 8×10 inch prints, but they are beautiful). I started out by reading manual (God forbid!) and messing around with it around the house. It really does fit into my pocket so I took it to my daily workout on an elliptical machine and shot from the hip while walking the dog.

It’s me, it’s me oh Lord . . . . Here I m again, this time at 10:07 AM on February 14, 1999. I’ve clearly survived my all nighter shooting myself every hour and I’m refreshed from my shower.
