NEW YORK NEW YORK – A good day today – I got around a good bit of Manhattan: starting near the Empire State Building; moving on to Chelsea; then to Columnbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in Washington Heights.

Day 2105 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Carrying the big guy today, my Leica S medium format camera and a new 24mm super wide lens (this completes my trade out of my former Phase One medium format kit). A very, very capable camera, but it doesn’t sing to me the way the Leica rangefinder cameras do. I’m continuing to work on this. In reality it may be that I see in black and white and shouldn’t be trying to shoot color with this camera.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – I dropped by the Matthew Marks Gallery to catch up with a show on landscape called La Carte d’aprês Nature. It caught my attention because it included a dozen or so images by Luigi Ghirri, who we collect. Interesting show. I was there with my Leica M9 and 28mm Summicron lens.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – I had lunch at Colicchio and Sons, followed by a trip across 10th Avenue to the Chelsea Market, an outstanding food destination. The James Beard Foundation (of which I’m the Chairman) is opening a popup restaurant at Chelsea Market named JBFLtd. I dropped by the restaurant in its final stages of preparation.
