Surfing Air BnB listings recently, dreaming, New York, it's been too long, two years already. I need a fix of your hustle, bustle and photographic inspiration. Well, ok a proper slice of pizza as well and a return visit to George Keeley on the Upper West Side for a really nice pint of Brooklyn Brown Ale. This year is unlikely, maybe 2016 for the big return, hopefully with a much stronger Canadian dollar.
Below are some shots I really haven't shared far and wide, all were taken on a rainy Monday south of Houston Street in SoHo mostly. When I do return, I want to explore more of Brooklyn and the East Village as well as revisiting the High Line, Central Park and the Upper East Side.
I had a change of scenery last week house, dog, turtle and goldfish sitting in the Beaches in Toronto. The break was much needed and I got a lot done. This time out aside from two shots on my iPhone, I only used my Mamiya C220f. As I mentioned in previous posts, I'm toying of using the Mamiya kit for Algonquin Park this year at the end of September. The big plus for a medium format twin lens reflex camera is the interchangeable lenses, other cameras like that come only with a fixed lens. The downside, it can be on the heavy, especially if you factor in a 10km+ hike, well another reason to step up my workout routine.
