It was a delight to see this boy splash around at the Columbus Circle fountain in New York City, and my Olympus 35-RC rangefinder did a good job recording this back-lit scene.

Misty Reflections on the Lake

The Lake in Central Park and the Beresford apartments on a rare misty morning; New York City.

There are rare occasions of misty scenes in Central Park, and last year I was lucky enough to be there during one of them. Depicted is a view over The Lake with the Beresford apartments in the distance.

A Winter Castle

Although today was a perfect spring day in Central Park, the snow is still fresh in our memories.  This is what Belvedere Castle looked like around twilight during the February blizzard .

Umbrellas, rain, stairs and people – my favorite elements all combined in one photograph, taken with one of my favorite cameras, the small Olympus XA 35mm rangefinder, on Kodak Portra 400 NC film.

Reflections on Reality #3

More confusing reflections at Lincoln Center, New York City taken with my Olympus XA film camera, this time on Kodak Portra 400NC color negative film. I like the soft muted colors of this film as well as the dynamic range, wich is much broader than anything you get with digital.

Apple computer store, Fifth Avenue & 59th Street.

The Apple store on Fifth Avenue is one of my favorite places to go for two reasons. Apple…..and the architecture. Another favorite of mine is the Olympus OM 1 camera. I’ve had mine since 1976 and it is still as good as new. They knew how to make quality products in those days. I took this shot of the glass stairs at the Apple store with my 50mm f1.4 lens on Kodak Portra 400NC film and I think the results far surpass what a digital camera can accomplish. But I’m biased 😉
