MANHATTAN – The Leica M10-P arrived today! I charged up the battery, strapped on my APO-Summicron 50mm lens (which I call the Luxochron – one of the lenses I didn’t sell) and went out to shoot some familiar territory. It’s great to be back shooting with a rangefinder – the frame lines really do change the way you see. I’ll be spending the next month or so getting familiar with this camera. The first image is a three frame stitch.

MANNHATTAN – Back here early to set up my new computer in my newly-renovated home office. Ready to rock and roll again. I actually got some ok images today (a departure from the slump that I’ve been in for the last week) including the image below of the house on Fifth Avenue that used to be the Audubon Society, became the ICP, and is now a hedge fund manager’s private home.

MANHATTAN – We had another heavy snow storm today – winter seems to be a never-ending phenomenon this year. I was feeling centered and symmetrical today. Images shot with my Sony A7rii converted to monochrome (bay removing the camera’s Bayer filter).

MANHATTAN – I was out and about today with my Sony A7rii (converted to monochrome imaging) in good light. Actually an unusually good day so I’m presenting a gallery.

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.

On this day eight years ago (day 2): For rent Eight years ago was just post financial crisis so there ware a lot of for rent signs on store fronts. We’re seeing for rent signs again, this time because bricks and mortar retailers are being driven out of business by online stores.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – A single iPhone image today – I’m distracted by other things going on in my life.

By the way I haven’t forgotten about June 21. The image for June 21 is on a computer that I don’t have access to today or for the next week. I’ll post June 21 once I have access to the image.
