NEW YORK NEW YORK – -Look’s like Francesca’s back home again. She has interrupted her post-bar pre-work travel to come home to have here broken foot repaired at the Hospital for Special Surgery. She’s cheerful under the circumstances. Taken with my Leica Monchrom and 35mm Suumilux lens. The Monochrom continues to wow me.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – A dislocated weekend. For today and tomorrow we’ve ceded our house to our daughter, Francesca, for a bachelorette party that she’s throwing for a friend. Dangerous territory. So we’re camping out for the weekend at Doug and Judy Hamilton’s house because they’re on the way to Salt Lake via the California Zephyr (a train!). I spent today photographing Doug and Judy’s house with my Alpa Max and Phase One IQ 180 back. Then the bachelorettes descended on us for cocktails, which I captured in the waining light with my M9 and a 1954 50 mm Dual-Range Summicron lens. Here you go:

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I stopped by Francesca’s apartment to help her put it back together after a paint job. Then a Yankees game against Texas. This was a sensational day for baseball (but the Yankees lost 10-6) – through a friend we had Legends seating which as you will see is about as good as it gets. Both images with my Leica M9 and 18mm Super Elmar lens.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I spent the late afternoon (after a more or less full day at my day job) preparing for a dinner party. Cooking well is a bit of a curse – people come to expect it. The menu was all cook-in-advnace summer stuff: vitello tonato, salade a la russe, an onion tart and a tossed salad. Anyway, here are images with my Fuji X Pro.
