    While I was working in Boston a few months ago I got a chance to visit NY for the first time (here). I've been back in Boston for work these past couple of months, and got a chance to visit NY once again this past Memorial Day weekend. During my last visit I mainly used the two Olympus Pro zooms for their versatility, so this time around I decided to use just primes (O25 Pro/PL42.5/O75). All shots are handheld. :) 

    PL42.5 at 1/320s f5 iso100

    O25 Pro at 1/5s f1.2 iso200

    Panoramic off the back of the East River Ferry (IBIS works wonders!) w/ O25 Pro at 1/15s f/1.2 iso1250

    O75 at 1/800s f4 iso200

    Panoramic w/ O75 at 1/6400s f3.2 iso200

    O25 Pro at 1/1250s f1.2 iso200

    Of course I had to run into B&H and mess around with some gear. I've been contemplating picking up the PL12 f1.4 so of course I had to take a test shot with one. Shot taken at 1/60s f1.4 iso200. Focus was on the back of the girl's head in front of me several feet away. I wanted to see if shallow DoF was still obtainable several feet from a subject. I must say, this is a very impressive lens!

    Glad to see this set featured on the home page, it clearly was a lost jewel of a thread.

    I like the black and white shot of 7th Av. Nice to see the Oly 75mm for that shot. Looks like chaotic scene with cars, buildings, traffic lights, but somehow my eye gets pulled to the police officer in the midst of all this.

    NY is such a lovely city. I have been lucky to be able to visit it 4 times :)  It never gets boring and I'd love to go back there in the future.
