NEW YORK, NEW YORK – I walked around Grand Central Terminal with a small sensor camera, a Ricoh GRD 3, using it as a sketchpad. I’ll come back and shoot infrared once I understand the site better.  This is another architectural icon.  I found myself gravitating toward details.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – We had a lovely, clear late fall day today – unseasonably warm.  This another installment in a long-term project:  shooting iconic places.  The challenge is to get past trite.  This image is shot in infrared, which I use often in Manhattan.  The image of 30 Rock may not be my best image of the day.  One of the most difficult challenges in posting every day is self-editing under time pressure.  It’s easy enough to find the three best, or the many non-keepers.  But the final choice is difficult because it’s hard to sort out what the criteria are.  For example, is there a narrative?  Is it a problem to have churches on three consecutive days.  Anyway, here’s 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
