NEW YORK NEW YORK – Alexander and I went to a Rangers game. Surprisingly sporting events are not really good venues for me to photograph. There’s not a lot of landscape at a hockey game. So I snapped off a six frame stitch of 30 Rockefeller Plaza on my way walking to Madison Square Garden. Taken with my Leica Monochrom and 75mm Summicron lens.
Day 1,543 of one photo a day for the rest of my life.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – I took a walk around midtown with my Leica and the “bokeh king” lens this morning. My best image from my last couple of days is a fragment of the Rockefeller Center statue of Prometheus with the background deliciously out of focus.
Just for reference, here’s the other famous Rock Center statue, Atlas, which depicts Atlas supporting an armillary sphere, rather than the Earth. Taken at a few minutes earlier with the same equipment.
NEW YORK, NEW YORK – We had a lovely, clear late fall day today – unseasonably warm. This another installment in a long-term project: shooting iconic places. The challenge is to get past trite. This image is shot in infrared, which I use often in Manhattan. The image of 30 Rock may not be my best image of the day. One of the most difficult challenges in posting every day is self-editing under time pressure. It’s easy enough to find the three best, or the many non-keepers. But the final choice is difficult because it’s hard to sort out what the criteria are. For example, is there a narrative? Is it a problem to have churches on three consecutive days. Anyway, here’s 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
