NEW YORK NEW YORK – The highlight of my day was a visit to our doctor’s office for my annual echo cardiogram. There was nice light on Park Avenue.

On this day two years ago (day 1,979): Kitchen I was definitely hard up last year – reduced to shooting a vase of tulips.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Not a super good day of photography. I’m bored with the dull light, and the Sony 7rii that I’m shooting old lenses with just doesn’t resonate with me. It’s not that it’s not an excellent camera, it’s just that the way one sees with it does’n fit my style.

I stayed indoors and struggled a bit. At least with the Sony it’s easy to add an extension tube to do close-ups.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – This is a slightly melancholy week for me – it’s my first week serving as of counsel in my law firm – I’m officially no longer a partner. I photographed the “work wall” in my office, a design feature common in offices that includes file drawers and bookshelves. A lot of effort went into its design. (Gensler was the architect, the wood is anigre – ours is a light wood office.) Everything about it is obsolete. The file drawers are empty; their contents have been supplanted by on-line resources. There are almost no books on the bookshelves; books have been supplanted by on-line resources. What you see on the bookshelves are mostly “deal toys”, mementos of completed transactions past, but for the present and future a luxury that most clients are not willing to pay for. Pictures of my family at younger ages. Anyway . . . . Here’s the work wall shot with a Leica M9 and 35mm Summilux II lens.

On this day last year: Balloons!! This is really as good as it gets. On reflection one of my favorites from last year. Taken with my Leica M9 and a 35mm Summicron version iv lens.
