New York, NY -- The next time you are in New York, take the broadway local to Canal St. and walk east on Canal past the ramp to the Manhattan Bridge. There is a bona fide autonomous island city within the island, under the bridge downtown, of citizen skaters.

Definitely digging the first in the set, if only as an excuse to trot out the old Bresson chestnut.

One blurred photo is a mistake, ten is an experiment and 100 is a style.

You decide which category this one belongs to. I stay out of it !

Ha, spot on. The first and second in the series above were taken with a diminutive point-and-shoot rangefinder, the Olympus XA (max SS 1/500). The camera is semi-automatic in that you choose the aperture (2.8-22) of the F-ZUIKO 1:2.8 f=35mm lens. The camera meters and automatically selects shutter speed (up to 1/500) based on aperture and iso input (25-800). Here I metered tri-x 400 for 800 and, on a semi-cloudy day, chose f/4 in an attempt to keep the SS high. I should have chosen f/2.8 (the blur is not intentional).

Fortune favors the prepared mind...the first B&W in the new set is the best of all.
