NEW YORK NEW YORK – February 17 is demonstrably one of the dullest days in my photo-a-day effort: I don’t have much to show for February 17 during the entirety of my past six year effort. The tradition continues.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – On my way to Boston this morning for meetings. Still shooting with my Sony 7Rii and ancient Carl Zeiss Jena lenses – today a 21mm f4.5 Biogen from 1956. I bought this lens on eBay from a seller who listed it as a rare pre-war lens. Very rare indeed since the 21mm was not introduced until 1954. It’s a genuinely fine lens and a useful focal length for me. I often crop to square with wides. If you shoot level (to avoid radically converging verticals) you often end up with a vast expanse of boring foreground. The problem is solved by cropping the foreground out – a square aspect ratio works about right for a 21mm.

My largest online presence is on Twitter, where I have 92,000 followers.

Here’s a link to my Twitter feed: Woody’s Twitter feed. Twitter is actually down this morning so I’m pretty irritated.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I caught an early Acela to Boston for some meetings, so I found myself in the vicinity of Penn Station (the most vile portal on any major city anywhere in the world) pre=dawn in the rain. I actually got some ok images.
