Tag Archives: Flatiron District
I know swapping a new wide angle lens for your trusty 50mm lens doesn’t mean you can only take pictures of buildings and bridges, but suddenly that’s what I’m drawn to . A few more, just for fun.

All images shot with Nikon FM2n and Nikkor 28mm f2.8 Ai-S MF lens on Ilford HP5+ film developed in Kodak TMax developer (1+4) for 6.5 minutes.
Last week, I noticed a link to a very short story in the New York Post about an art installation in the Flatiron District. British sculptor Antony Gormley is installing life-size sculptures on rooftops of buildings around Flatiron and Madison Square Park. Of course, I hopped on the 4/5 train and zipped up there after work to get several interesting shots. I think I like this one the best. Something about the plane defining the space that the human like figure should not be inhabiting. Complete set on Flickr.
Taken that same night, while I was waiting for the sun to set, Squirrel on Ground.
