NEW YORK NEW YORK – More familiar territory with the ultra wide 15mm Zeiss lens on my Leica MM. This lens continues to interest me, but I am looking forward to the end of the week that I’ve committed to keep it on my camera. I reshot Citicorp this morning and 1185 Park Avenue this afternoon. The lens let me shoot all of 1185 without stitching (a reshoot of June 30, 2014). I had to point up a bit, however, to get the top of the building, which meant that I had to correct sharply converging vertical lines in Photoshop. The resulting “stretching” of the top of the image magnified the Zeiss 15’s very slight “mustache” distortion to the point where it is visible, especially in the upper right corner of the image. I really have to shoot level with this lens.
Day 1,729 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day last year (day 1,364): Venice Biennale.
