NEW YORK NEW YORK – Out a window in our offices with my new Leica S and 35mm lens. It produces very deep files that hold up under intense editorial abuse, in this case extensively lightening the foreground and darkening the sky.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I took a walk with my M9 and the 24mm Summilux. Surprise! I found a distant, solitary figure. Still doing this.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – I walked to the office today with my Alpa and the 72mm Schneider Digitar. I’m experimenting to see if it’s possible to hand hold the camera with this lens. (Longer lenses are more demanding in terms of camera movement than shorter lenses.) The light was just ok. There’s a no name spec building at the Northwest corner of 57th street and Lexington Avenue. I played around with the plaza in front of it, and finally realized that the shot for the day was looking straight up. You’ll see that the framing would have been better if I had included the full circle on the sides of the frame. The Alpa finder is kind of approximate – based in this fairly disappointing experience I’ll be trying some of my Leica finders on the Alpa to see if I can get more accurate results.

Anyway . . .

Look up!

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – I explored the UN area with my Alpa TC today. Poorish light – intermittent high clouds and a very bright sky. Some of the better ideas I had were in the deep shade in Stuyvestant Town, but the images are poor – the TC simply needs a lot of light or a tripod. Anyway this is the best thing to come out of the day:

On this day one year ago: Porto Seguro, Brazil. This isn’t bad for a travel day. Maybe I should just stop whining about travel days make the most of them.

NEW YOEK, NEW YOEK – The meds are slowly taking effect. I managed to get out of bed for a walk around Bryant Park and the 42nd Street Library, fairly early in the day before the heat drove me off of the street. Here are some images with my Alpa TC and a 35mm Schneider lens and a digital back.
