NEW YORK NEW YORK – I found myself in the East Village this afternoon with my Leica Monochrm and 50mm APO Summicron lens in hand. Not a bad day.

Twenty years ago I shot a lot of parties, From 1997 the caption here would be “Party on, dude.”

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Where to start? I found myself today in the West Village in brilliant early evening light and got many interesting images (revisiting some sites that I’ve long been interested in). Then at cocktails for the Center for Fiction. I’ve had a lot of trouble editing.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I walked around the Village this afternoon with my Alpa TC. There was wonderful Edward Hopper light – just enough haze to open up the shadows – the IQ 180 back’s color rendering actually got the light right. Here are a couple of examples:

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Here’s the dark underside of the photo-a-day experience: sometimes you just don’t feel like it. I found myself walking in the Village today, coming back from a meeting at the James Beard House. I just wasn’t seeing well. Here’s the best of a bad lot – a tree shadow on West 12th Street.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – This evening I took a walk on West 12th Street. I arrived here just before sunset, catching the long shadows on a bar.

I’m writing this post on the evening of October 17 – the delay is a consequence of shooting a lot of images over the last few days (requiring a lot of time and effort to edit) and a power failure in Connecticut this weekend which left us in the dark and without computer power. One consequence of the delay is that the previous day’s image (October 12), an image that I don’t much care for, has been at the top of my blog for a long time. Memo to self: in the future I have to be much more disciplined about getting posts up following an image that I’m not proud of (the photo a day format insures that there will be some of these).

Anyway, the bar in the West Village shot with my Leica M9 and a 50 mm Summilux Asph. lens.
