Simple salad / Canon 5D


Of all Italian salads, this simple masterpiece is the most ubiquitous. This is from an agriturismo in Piedmont, but the identical salad was eaten at breakfast in Sicily. I had this daily in the summer when I used to visit my grandfather in the country. Just tomatoes, onions and olives. The dressing is oil and vinegar. In Sicily we added a sprinkle of oregano and a salted sardine was also part of this healthful breakfast. The bread was home made in a wood fired oven. The lens was the Canon 24-105 F 4 L.
Buon appetito.

Looking back to cooler days / Nikon D-300


It's very hot and my thoughts are long for spring. This shot of tulips in the front of my home was made with the Micro Nikkor 60mm F 2.8.

Winter dreams / Leica M-4


Yes indeed. When it's hot I think of cold weather although I really despise the winter. Once again, this scene is fron Bryn Mar, Pennsylvania and the lens was the superlative Summicron 35mm F2. This was Kodachrome -X at the super speed of 64! Funny, really.

A blast from the past / Leica M-4


This clothes line was in Lancaster Pennsylvania way back in 1970. The 50mm Summicron F2 was used. It's amazing how the Kodachrome II color has held up.

Meat packing district / E PL-2


One more from this fascinating area of the city. Of course when I say the city I mean the only city and that is New York. Of course I'm a snob. It's hard not to be one once you live in this fabulous city.
