Art is not completely dead in New York. This lasted at least two minutes before a cop came to sweep it away.

Out and About in New York and Paris

I’ve been out of town and haven’t had the chance to post lately, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been shooting. I left my press equipment behind and hit the road with film cameras and my Fuji X100 – the later of which was used for these shots here.

Shocking as it may be, the weather was perfect. Two weeks in NY had only a day or two of clouds, and that perfect autumnal light seemed to strike wherever we went.

The weather even played along for a twelve hour layover in Paris. I’ve never seen such blue skies there.

Enjoy.

And then onto Paris, perhaps the only city in the world where you have to try even harder than in New York to avoid taking cliché photographs and photographic clichés.

One more bridge for the collection, but only because the light was just right.
