I added a couple of new tools to the arsenal this week. Specifically, I finally picked up a Fujifilm X100S. I have ranted about this camera a few times already. I have only had it one day, but I already like it quite a bit. I showed a couple of my friends, who called it a tourist camera. Funny enough, that is exactly what I intend to use it for. It is such a pain to drag an SLR system with me every time that I travel. I plan on bringing this girl with me everywhere. In true tourist fashion, I snapped a couple of shots in midtown this morning (including one in Times Square). Nothing amazing, but I’m just getting her broken in!
I took advantage of the long President’s Day weekend and made my way across the pond. This was only my second time in Paris, and I have to say that I enjoyed it considerably more than the first time I visited. I didn’t really shoot that much while I was there. But here are the few that I did get when I brought my camera out with me.
Even though today is the official start of New York fashion week, offsite shows started in the beginning of the week. I actually like the offsite shows much better (not just because they tend to be in my neighborhood). The tents are pretty sterile and boring. Plus a lot of my least favorite photogs hangout there full time. Anyway, here are some of my snaps from Tuesday and Wed.
I guess that we have been kind of spoiled in NYC for the past few winters. Though there were some cold days and some snow, it wasn’t consistently cold the way it has been this winter for several years. I say this because the last time I remember seeing ice flow like this on the Hudson was in 2010. I snapped these pics last Friday evening in north cove marina. At eventide, the ice expands a good 50′ from the bank.
My friends at Cold Smoke hit me up recently to get some snaps of their ‘Aurora’ down jacket. Over the weekend ended up being the perfect wintry type of weather to for the images we wanted.
In going back through the stuff that I shot in 2013, one thing has become very apparent– With the exception of NYFW in February, I am much more prolific in the warmer months. It isn’t that I’m not shooting in the winter. I’m just uninspired and not as active. Anyway, I have decided to pad this new full width layout with some of the favorite images that I snapped in 2013. I’ll do it in a couple of installations. This is the first.
