House. Flag. Cow.
OK the cow is a statue. But still.
This is Queens. This is America. Where people have cow statues in their front yards.

I’m heading back to Acadia National Park in Maine this morning (not literally, just to pick an image) from the group #nXnw2014 trip last October. This was near the end of our pre-dawn to early-morning session on a beach facing Otter Cliffs, which you can see in the distance. The sun was up and it was almost time to pack up. The waves were coming in, not especially hard but generating the occasional spray. I decided to just shoot a burst every time they came in for a few cycles and hope for something good. This was the biggest spray I caught. I wasn’t even thinking about the orange/blue color contrast, so that was a nice bonus.
This is the Sea Grape Wines and Spirits storefront, early on a weekend morning last November. I really like this black and white cinestill film. It’s a limited run, so when my batch runs out that’s it (it’s possible they might make more but no guarantee).
Another pair following up on yesterday’s post displaying a bit of December holiday dressing in NYC, caught with a Contax T3 and its fixed Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 lens, using Kodak T-Max 400 film. One is is a Rockefeller Center light angel, the other a window in the Bergdorf Goodman store on Fifth Avenue. Black and white 400 ISO film can do the job at night if you point it at something bright.
I hope I don’t get in trouble with the Director of Research. The #WE35 project* (info here) is supposed to start this month, but with film there is a lag. You have to finish the roll and get it processed. So I hope it’s OK to include some December shots as part of my research. These were taken with a Contax T3 and its fixed Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 lens, using Kodak T-Max 400 film.
* We35 is basically a fun group project where you commit to shoot certain sessions exclusively with a 35mm fixed lens (or equivalent) and share the results.
