Always a delight to get to NYC and see old and new friends. A great week shooting, attending Photo Expo and working on my portfolio.
I got to hang out with Jerry and Melissa Ghionis, Peter Hurley and Peter Turnley in NYC. Also shooting with May Wong, dinner with my wife's nephew David and his beautiful wife Shiling, a photo shoot with Michelle and fun holiday photos with Daniel and Jessica. Ruby joined for the weekend and we took in the Book of Mormon and Hamilton, both excellent. Dinners included Becco, Morimoto and Blue Ribbon Sushi. And of course a little shopping in SoHo!
Leica had a major new announcement with the Leica SL full frame camera. Most of the work here is shot on Leica cameras, but I found this announcement just so so. I got to hold an SL at the PPE show and it felt big and awkward, especially the grip. I will stick with my Q, Monochrom and M240.
So good to be back in California now for a few weeks, then I think back to Japan for trip #100.
