NEW YORK NEW YORK – As I go about my day I look for parking lots and vacant lots – missing teeth in the structure of the city. They often permit points of view or light that wouldn’t be possible otherwise.

Today I’m back to shooting with my Leica Monochrom and a modern 50mm Asp. Summicron lens, in this case three frames stitched. I’ve taught myself to stitch reliably and do so every day at this point. The stitched image produces a very large file – larger than the highest resolution digital medium format cameras – which means that there are enough pixels that I can correct converging vertical lines in Photoshop and still have good resolution at the top of the frame. It turns out that this works better for me than the traditional way of avoiding converging verticals, a shift lens, because of the problem of decreasing image quality as you approach the edge of the shifted lens’s image circle. Anyway . . .

Day 2182 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

On this day last year (day 1817): Madison Avenue. Another three frame stitch with my Monochrom with converging vertical lines corrected in Photoshop
