A few people have asked me about the photos here, where they come from, and how they were taken. Well there is a good deal of variety, typified by the four most recent pictures that you see below in postings on January 25th and 26th.
In descending order - the one of the 5th Avenue Apple store on Saturday evening was taken with the little Canon Elph SD40 in my pocket at the time.
The one in MOMA of the approach to the Lucien Freud exhibition was taken with my old Pentax ZX5-n film camera, on a black and white film XP2 developed and scanned in an hour by the Duane Reade pharmacy by the old Empire Hotel on Broadway. For those interested I used a Pentax 43mm f1.9 lens - an unusual lens of excellent quality the existence of which few are aware.
The one of the rehearsal room at the New York City Opera was taken with my iPhone. A versatile little device with a surprisingly good camera if the lighting is right.
And the 8am shot in Central Park was captured by my Pentax K10D - a lovely digital camera which can use all my old Pentax lenses going back 40 years. In this case I was using a very small compact 21mm prime (not a zoom) - a modern lens designed for these excellent new Pentax reflex cameras. This is the camera I use for the COT production shots you have seen here.
So no rules - just what happens to work at the time. I hope it makes the blog more amusing - it does for me anyway!
