Madison Avenue at East 52nd Street.
I took this as I hurried to work last Monday, and I used my Nikon F100 film SLR.
On the way home I saw that the basic arrangement was the same, and took out my digital P&S camera for a reshoot. Its battery was flat, and I don't carry a spare with me.
So despite the constant predictions of its demise, I can safely say that film isn't dead – but batteries often are.
While it's been pretty quiet over here, my daily photo project has been progressing rather nicely. Using film cameras means that I take photos in lumps, so I'm countering that by using a digital point-and-shoot and posting one photo from it every day since it came out of the box. I upload my favourites from each day to a gallery, and the project continues until it reaches 5000 photos. I'm currently at 833 after 81 days.
Most days I take only a few photos, maybe five or ten. Today was more like fifty.
In addition to playing with my waterproof camera in a shallow fountain, I also brought out my Sony PCM-D50 audio recorder. I've mixed four different tracks together to create a 45 second sound clip with software that I'd never used before, which was far less frustrating than trying to create a slideshow with iMovie, then Final Cut Express, and finally iPhoto. The video results are unsubtle, but bearable enough for an afternoon's work.
(There is a time delay on the 5kp site, so today's photo won't appear until June 24.)
