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.

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.”

MANHATTAN – I had an active day of walking around Foley Square and the financial district in good urban light with my Sony A7riii and the Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens. It’s not my style to shoot zooms because they never perform at the same level as the best primes, and they are large and heavy. But this one is good. Corner to corner stitches with the lovely Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 are better, but you can’t reliably stitch in many situations. This lens is a keeper.

I’m running through my inventory of Sony E-mount lenses to decide which are keepers – this one clearly is.

MANHATTAN – My hat inventory needs some help – I loose hats and summer Panama’s get tatty after a few years of use. So . . . I went to JJ Hat Center on lower Fifth Avenue to stock up. Since I don’t do selfies you’ll have to guess at what i bought.

Hats!
