WARREN CONNECTICUT – Laura, Alexander and Baby V joined us here for the weekend so you’re getting . . . a gallery of baby pictures. The first is with my Leica S2 medium format camera and 120 macro lens. Focus with the lens hunts like the devil in an application like this. It’s frustrating. I’m tempted to chuck the whole thing and buy a Nikon. The rest are with my Leica Monochrom and f.95 Noctilux lens. Remember that I have a love hate relationship with this lens.

NEW YORK NEW YORK and HUTCHINSON RIVER PARKWAY – I shot out the window while driving earlier today at the worlds ugliest cell tower, which is located at the pit stop on the Hutch. Then back home with Laura, Alexander and baby Victoria. I freshened up my collection of images of our granddaughter with my Leica S2 medium format camera.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I’ve mentioned that Laura and Alexander are living with us while their kitchen is being finished, right. And that her due date is Friday and we’re timing contractions and going back and forth to the hospital. I started to give up hope on seeing a baby today so I went out on the street with my medium format Leica S2 and caught a dog’s eye view picture that I had noticed earlier while walking Basil. But mid-day Laura went into the delivery room in a definitive fashion, and . . . Welcome to the world, Victoria! Here’s our first grandchild, about 30 minutes old in these pictures, taken with my Leica S2, 70mm lens and a speed light.
