NEW YOKR NEW YORK – A good day with my camera. We had dinner with Patrizia Chen and some friends of hers. I’m getting even better results from my Leica now that I have glasses that correct my astigmatism. Before Patrizia’s dnner I stopped at Ladurée, an outpost on Madison Avenue of the French cathedral of macaroons. All images taken with my Leica Monochrom and 35mm Summilux lens.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Maria and I had dinner with Patrizia Chen, her sister and some friends. Patrizia entertains remarkably so it was, as usual, a fine evening. I took my Nex-7 and a Leica 50mm Summilux. As you’ve noticed all of my “event” style work is in available light. I find that I can simply disappear after the first two or three images – impossible with flash. Its also helpful that the Nex-7 is small and quiet (more so than my Leica M9).

On this day last year: Chrysler Building, sort of. And a Breuer chair – the 1930s redux.
