What a treat it was to see Nobuyuki Tsujii, Japanese pianist, perform again – this time a program of Beethoven at Carnegie Hall with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. A chilly and snowy day in Manhatten, but what fun it was. With a  bowl of Totto Ramen to warm things up, the day could not have been better. Backstage at Carnegie Hall after the magnificent performance, and dinner with Nobuyuki-san and friends topped off a wonderful day in the city.

For more on Nobuyuki Tsujii, visit Peter Rosen Productions site and his movie on the 13th Van Cliburn competition here. Also, a great way for keeping up with Mr. Tsujii’s busy schedule is to visit the official fan page here.

New York City August 2012

The summer session in New York was a real treat. I had just added Canon’s TS-E 17mm (tilt shift) lens to my collection and it was the perfect weekend to see how it compared to my 24mm tilt shift. With that in mind, I set out to capture some otherwise uncapturable shots. Grand Central Station, Empire State Building and the Flatiron Building were all shot with this lens on a tripod. Note the floor to ceiling range on the Grand Central shot. A side trip to Brooklyn, and strolls around the city offered up new ideas, compositions and urban vistas to behold.
