NEW YORK NEW YORK – I wandered the Upper West Side today with my Sony A7riii and the well-thought-of 24-90 native Sony zoom. I usually don’t like zooms but this one performs well. The real issue with it is that it’s Bokeh (the quality of the out of focus parts of images) is “edgy”, which I don’t like at all – I prefer “creamy.”

WINGDALE and MANHATTAN – I was all over the place today, driving up to Warren CT to run an errand in the town hall (which is only open Monday-Thursday when we normally aren’t there) and then back to New York.

On this date five years ago (day 1456): Tomatoes. This was taken with the first version of the Leica Monochrom and the 50mm Leica APO-Summicron lense (the Luxocron); I loved the rendering of this lens five years ago and it’s still in daily use.

MANHATTAN – One of the themes that I’m exploring is how persistent plant life is in Manhattan – stuff grows everywhere despite the hostile urban environment.

MANHATTAN – The Leica M10-P arrived today! I charged up the battery, strapped on my APO-Summicron 50mm lens (which I call the Luxochron – one of the lenses I didn’t sell) and went out to shoot some familiar territory. It’s great to be back shooting with a rangefinder – the frame lines really do change the way you see. I’ll be spending the next month or so getting familiar with this camera. The first image is a three frame stitch.
