While the City Sleeps

early-morning-pickup-1524 While the City Sleeps

While I was doing the color stuff, I would get up early (before dawn) and walk around the upper east side looking for images; the working theory being that pre-dawn would help me simplify the color palette. Whatever. They turned into good b&w shots.

Sometimes, when I look back, I think I invent these little projects as triggers to get me going.

Sigma f1.4 @ f1.4, 1/30th of a sec. ASA 800 (what else?)

Oh, and I re-did the home page for the millionth time.  Keep trying different color schemes but keep coming back to black and white (uh, where’ve you heard that before).  Anway,  I’ve been fooling around with the google gadgets. Pretty cool stuff out there.  The site search gadget works well.  I find myself using it when I can’t remember where something is.  And the rss gadget is also pretty cool.  I’d like to set it up so that it shows the first post by default, but I can’t figure out yet how to do that.  Might be a way.

Also got some Lexjet Sunset Fibre Elite paper from them (samples). They’ve been trying to sell me something for a long time. (A printer, some paper, anything).  Anyway, did two prints on the Elite paper. It’s got a nice surface, but doesn’t lie flat the way the Epson “F” paper does and doesn’t quite have the same gleam as the Epson F paper.

There are one or two other papers I want to test before I settle (probably) on the Epson “F Gloss” paper. I can’t see anything beating it, but I want to see if there’s a similar paper that’s available on a roll.
