NEW YORK NEW YORK – A truly good day today on Fifth and Park Avenues in soft light. All images shot with a 1958 Dual Range Summicron lens (50mm), which has a lovely signature, on my Leica Monochrom camera.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I went hunting for images in the neighborhood today with a longish lens (a 90mm) and found a couple of odd angles. Long lenses are a challenge for me; I much more often shoot wide. The fire escapes are two frames stitched.

Day 1,755 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I had amazing luck today. I went to the Guggenheim Museum with my daughter and a close friend of hers; we had lunch at The Wright (a restaurant located in the Guggenheim) and walked the Central Park reservoir. I’ve been trying to take a picture I like of the museum for two years; I finally got it. I’ve also being trying to take a picture of the reservoir with the west side skyline in the background, and tall grass/reeds in spots around the reservoir in the foreground; I finally got it. Both taken with my Leica M9 and 24mm Summilux lens, more than justifying my affection for this combination.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I had the opportunity to borrow a demo Phase One IQ 180 digital back for the weekend. This is the latest and greatest in digital backs, with an 80 meg sensor and a sophisticated iPhone-like interface that makes it particularly well adapted for use on a tech camera. I’m considering trading my collection of Hasseblad gear for the IQ 180. After picking it up at Digital Transitions I got it set up my Alpa TC and went for a walk. Unfortunately the weather turned grim – as issue because these high end digital backs need a lot of light (or a sturdy tripod and a long exposure). I got as far as the Guggenheim Museum when it started to rain. Anyway, here is an early effort with it:
