NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Dinner at Bar Boulud with some old friends and our son and daughter, who took me there for Fathers Day. This is a silly made-up holiday designed to promote greeting card sales, but I have nonetheless promoted it to our children as the most important day of the year.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Back from Connecticut and a rainy weekend.  I had spent the weekend putting a relatively new (to me) camera through its paces, a Nikon D700.  I plan on using the D700 primarily for available light photograph in poor light, so I’ve put it back in its bag to wait for the next party, wedding, dinner or whatever.  For street use I’m back to my trusty Leica M9, which I prefer as long as there’s enough light to manually focus.  This picks up on my “Look up – don’t worry of it makes you look like a tourist” theme.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Our drive from Connecticut to New York was one of the worst ever – torrential freezing rain.  A normally two hour trip took three and a half hours.  We arrived tired and out of sorts, not really in a state of mind to photograph.  Here’s dinner with a friend at a local bistro.
