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 – One of the themes that I’m exploring is how persistent plant life is in Manhattan – stuff grows everywhere despite the hostile urban environment.

MANHATTAN – There are relatively new sculpture installations on the Park Avenue Mall – I actually haven’t been able to find anything out about them on line. This in front of the Armory, shot with my black and white Sony and an 18mm Batis lens.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I’m continuing to experiment with film – today shooting medium format with my Mamiya 7. This camera, which is effectively a great big plastic Leica (getting 10 6x7cm images on a roll of 120 film), is noted for its remarkable lenses. Mamiya, for example, copied the design for the lens on the Hasselblad Superwide and actually improved on it in the 43mm wide angle (giving the equivalent angle of view of the Hasselblad Superwide or a 21mm lens on a full frame digital camera). The scans came out beautifully. I’m including a small gallery to give you a sense of how these are coming out.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Out and about today with my Leica Monochrom and a very special lens: a Leica 35mm Summicron version IV that was manufactured in 1982, the so-called “bokeh king”. This lens does indeed have fairly creamy bokeh (the character of the out of focus portions of images) so I shot subjects that provided an opportunity to demonstrate bokeh. You may remember that I’m reviewing my whole lens collection on the subject of bokeh.
