Have a beautiful weekend


Coney Island a few years ago

Actually many years ago. These shots date from 1972 and were shot on Kodachrome II with a Leica M-4 and a 35mm Summicron F2 lens.

What can I say. A wearable camera that attaches to eyeglasses,

The POGO CAM is here.

The PogoCam is very small personal camera that attaches magnetically to eye wear with a proprietary track called PogoTrack. At 10.9 x 12.5 x 42.8 millimeters, it's  presently lthe smallest wearable camera. A proprietary electronic architecture allows for high levels of   miniaturization and  very low power requirements while maintaining comparable image quality, storage capacity and performance to competing products. There is also on the market a similar camera, the Snapchat Spectacles but the Pogo can work with different eye  glasses. 
The camera comes with a 5 MP sensor and can capture and store 100 still images or up to two minutes of 720p HD video at 30 frames per second before you have to download data to a mobile device, using a cable or Bluetooth connection, and charge the battery. The makers of the device claim that image quality is comparable to a low end smartphone.  The ideal tool for photographers with no balls who like to spy on people
The camera is water-resistant and recharges in approximately 30 minutes.  It can also be removed quickly to store in a pocket. The PogoCam will sell for $129 after its official launch on March 30, 2017 and come with a free pair of non-prescription sunglasses, Enjoy.

Thinking of warmer places

  • These images are from Saint Augustine Florida. I wish I were there.

These images of East 28th Street were near my olf photo studio on 26th and Lexington. I used to pass this street daily on the way to the studio from the subway. These are Kodachromes ere scanned in order to preserve them.
