The View

The reason there have not been many blog posts over the past week is that I was in the process of moving to a new apartment in New York and my main computer was down for much of the time. The move is over, although I am living in a labyrinth of card board boxes and may not fully dig out for another week or so.

One of the side benefits of this move is the view I have of the Empire State Building. I thought it might be interesting to post a series of first impressions of the view. At times they reflect a casual glimpse, at others they are more studied. Here are a few of the first images taken with the Fuji X-T1 and 18-135mm and 14mm lenses.

A night time interpretation where I wanted to convey an impression of the building as it appears when you just catch a casual glimpse of it while passing through the apartment. 

This image really needs to be seen in a larger scale, but I thought I'd include it anyway.. It was shot through the grid-like pattern of the screen curtain and gives a pointillist view of the night scene.

This photo and the one below were taken with the Fiji 14mm lens just before the day dawned this morning. 


  1. Wonderful view! I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot of this! : )
