Cleaning House

I’m good at being uncomfortable, so I can’t stop changing all the time…

I like to keep my work evolving, which means I go through a lot of equipment, and I leave a lot more in my wake behind me. This doesn’t work so well when you live in Manhattan, so I’m doing a summer house-cleaning sale on some equipment I have lying around. I want to be done with this and ship everything before I go to California next week, so even though the pieces retail for as much as $2,000, I’m putting them all on eBay starting at 99 cents, no reserve.

This is what’s called faith in the system.

I still have a few things I was on the fence about, but here’s what’s on the chopping block. Everything is described as honestly as I could in the listing:

RK2 2734
Panasonic LX3

RK2 2738
Nikon 35mm f/1.8G

RK2 2747
Nikon 135mm f/2D DC

RK2 2748
Lensbaby Control Freak

and … last but not least…

RK2 2751
my Version 1 Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8
Killing my children, but onward and upward….

Jackie and Anthony’s Cescaphe Ballroom Wedding

I’d been shooting portraits of Jackie and her bridesmaids on a sunny Philadelphia pier when I looked back toward land and saw Anthony walking toward me with his groomsmen. In unison. In slow motion.

I started laughing. “Did you just Reservoir Dogs yourselves?”

It describes Jackie and Anthony well. Funny, care-free, and visually-oriented (Anthony is an avid photographer himself). It was bound to be a good time, and it was. Philadelphia’s Cescaphe Ballroom was elegant, convenient and, I hope, impervious to flame, since their wedding featured indoor fireworks and an indoor cigar bar. I wasn’t in Bloomberg’s NYC anymore…

I couldn’t have had a better time with them and their family. Congratulations, all.
