NEW YORK, NEW YORK – This afternoon I walked over to the Guggenheim Museum to take a look at the new restaurant there, The Wright (get it!). The Wright and its architect, Andre Kikoski, won best restaurant design at the James Beard Awards earlier this week. Link to James Beard Award winners. I ended up not photographing the restaurant, but caught a detail from the Church of the Heavenly Rest (occasionally referred to as “the church of the overly dressed” referring to its Fifth Avenue location) a block north of the museum. Image taken with a Leica M9 and a 24mm Summilux f1.4 lens. I took more details of the Guggenheim – I’ve attached one of the images in a comment.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Another day shooting infrared. This time shopping on Fifth Avenue.
I have a large ongoing project working with the problems of photographing iconic places. Go to Google Earth – this spot in Manhattan has hundreds of blue squares – images uploaded by Google Earth users. Sometimes point of view helps. I have better and worse days – the image a day discipline has its downsides.
