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.

On this date seven years ago (day 689): tree line Warren CT shot seven years ago with my medium format Phase One camera (subsequently sold). I’ve re-edited this image, completely re-imagining it.

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 spent some time today shooting around the Queensborough Bridge on the Manhattan side. There’s a lot of visual interest going on here – this is a spot where I’ve shot a dozen times. All images were taken with my Leica Monochrom and 50mm Summicron FLE lens. This is the equipment that I shoot best with – I can actually get along with one camera and one lens (despite owning multiple bodies and a lot of lenses).  I shoot with a three stop neutral density filter which lets me shoot this lens wide open in daylight. The chimney image is three frames stitched; the look up image is two frames. The stitching technique lets me use the 50mm as if it were a wide angle zoom.
