Manhattan

Long week in Manhattan

Up Sunday at noon, back Friday at noon. Photo Ops on Sunday afternoon and Tuesday evening. The rest of the time occupied with clients. Sunday walk from the Algonquin to the Hudson and back along the 40's, Tuesday along 44th to the east up Lex from Grand Central to Citicorp Center, then a zigzag route back to the Algonquin. Only about 250 snaps over both days — not many for me. Forgot the Mac at home so only some inital post processing done on the iPad with Photogene up there. Actually wasn't too bad. A7r Wifi and the Sony IOS app got the snaps into the iPad.

All with the A7r and the Nikon 20 f/2.8 AIs and finished in VSCO faux Tri-X 400 — cropped square. Most of the crops from the center which is what I am trying to compose using the grid in the Sony viewfinder.

Click on the day Sunday and Tuesday or the snaps below to head off to the smugmug galleries. Basically contact sheets, so a fairly large number of snaps in each.

Sunday afternoon Tuesday evening

Quick trip to NYC

Up late monday afternoon — back down just before 6PM on Tuesday. Two photo opportunities and a client meeting. All the photos with the a7r and the FE 35mm.

First group, right after arriving at the Algonquin, along 44th Street and 5th Avenue from 44 to 54th. The second while they were retrieving Charlotte from valet parking.  Most from Bryant Park, a few from Fifth and a few more from 44th. The rest out Charlotte's open windows and sun roof until the battery quit around 23rd Street. Click on the snaps below to check out the galleries — including several mirrored selfies. Hah!

Rock around 30 rock

Erstwhile Needle Park

After B&H

The apotheosis of St. francis of Assisi — St. Francis of Assisi, West 31st Street, Manhattan

So... a quick trip into B&H this afternoon to get a battery charger to make sure tomorrow is not a snapless Wednesday.  Great conversation with Andrew, who sold me the stuff, about B'more, his daughter, the MICA grad, who stuck around to teach art at a charter school.

On the way back after some gastronimic drama, this popped out the 5D Mk III just before the Path. actually the last shot of the day.  5D Mk III, 35 f/1.4L, f/8.0 at 100 ISO, handheld.
