MANHATTAN – I walked down the sunny side of Park Avenue today with my Sony A7riii collecting random observations. I’ve done images like this before but I found today’s light irresistible.

MANHATTAN – This morning I did a review of my work for the past few years and decided that I like the angular perspectives a lot, so I’ll be capturing them when I see them for the next few weeks. Shot with my Leica M10-P.

On this date two years ago (day 2589 of one photo every day): Big Rock Boston MA shot with my Sony A7rii and lovely 25mm Zeiss Batis lens. The fact that it’s fall and I’ve used yellow filtration in converting to black and white gives this image an infrared look. Compare my post of a big rock in Warren CT of two years ago: Big Rock Warren CT.

MANHATTAN – We were hit be an unseasonably early blizzard today. It was hell on traffic – the worse gridlock that I’ve ever seen here. But visually pretty good, so I’m back in my groove. All images shot with my iPhone.

On this date eight years ago (day 396 of one photo every day): Helmsley Building Looking up at the Helmsley Building with my Leica M9 and 16mm Voigtlander lens. Re-cropped and re-processed from the original. The ability to go back and re-imagine images is one of the key advantages to shooting raw files and preserving them with non-destructive edits.

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.
