So, welcome to 2007! I have joined the Rangefinderforum's PAW (picture a week) challenge, in a renewed effort at proper work motivation, so watch this space. Meanwhile, here's an old picture which I happen to like. This was shot a couple of years ago, when I still lived in new York City. My girlfriend's parents were in town visiting us and packing in as much Broadway and other NYC fun as they could into a five day visit. I shot this while walking around SoHo with them. I never got around to printing it until about two weeks ago (thus the need for reform), but I found the shot on the contact sheet, and decided it was worth taking a closer look at. I'd love to hear what you think. For those of you who are into the technical details, this was shot with a Leica M3 and 50mm DR Summicron, on Kodak Plus-X film, processed in Rodinal. So starting in just a few days, I'll be posting my first picture of 2007, and I will add a new picture at the end of every week. Happy New Year!
