NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Back home.  Once again the weather is cold and wet.  This is my second try of a post for this date.  The first was a personal memorial for a 24-year-old woman who was evidently killed when her bicycle was hit by a car – it was moving in person but not a good photograph.  On March 26 I took it down and replaced it with this image, also taken on March 23, of the Chrysler Building from a long ways away (just north of the UN), which I think is more interesting.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – A perfect winter day.  I spent a good part of the day in the 30s and 40s in Manhattan with my Leica M8 and infrared filters.  This was an opportunity to stalk one of my favorite subjects:  the Chrylser Building.  A very productive day with some interesting experiments with out of focus images.  I’ve taken the liberty of posting two outtakes in a comment.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – More work on icons, in this case the Chrysler Building at night.  It turns out that this is a little early in the winter to shoot Manhattan at night.  It looks best after the end of daylight savings time – it gets dark an hour earlier – so people are in their offices with their lights on.
