NEW YORK, NEW YORK – I went to lunch at Nougatine, the more casual room in Jean-Goerges Vongerichten’s restaurant at Columbus Circle. I met a friend there in our ongoing quest to try every burger in New York. The burger was fabulous, except we felt that the pickles should have been served on the side. Here’s the view East on Central Park South as I’m walking to lunch, shot in infra red with my Leica M8.2 and a 35mm Summicron pre-Asp. lens – two frames stitched. The M8 sensor is sensitive to infrared light which results in “IR-polution” of images (a magenta cast) unless you use an IR-blockig filter in front of the lens. Here I’m using a filter that blocks everything except IR light.

One thought on “Thursday February 3, 2011”

  1. Hello, Woody,

    It is grossly unfair, sir, but (okay, okay) wonderful… that you are making and posting so many fine images. Basil the Dog. Your daughter in a pensive moment at your table in the country. The monarch butterflies (amazing). Scenes from Recoleta. (Where is Evita when we need her?) All magical.

    I just want to ask you to confirm that you can indeed show-and-tell before the Princeton Photography Club this spring.

    With kind regards and serious photo-envy, Richard (Trenner)
