ESB Night No. 1
When it’s Christmas Morning on the night before Summer...
No matter how many years are on the odometer, I am delighted to say that I never run out of
“Kid on Christmas Morning” moments when I’m in New York with a camera or three.
And when one of those cameras happens to be my first full-frame D-SLR, the exquisite Canon EOS 5D MkIV – so glad I waited! – purchased especially for this trip and its planned twilight open helicopter flight (let’s call it an early Christmas present I’d no intention of waiting on Christmas Morning to open!)…
I suppose this image might serve as Exhibit-A. For at the end of my first day exploring new territory in the city, enjoying for the first time Madison Square Park, a few blocks south of my hotel on Madison Avenue, and a nice dinner at a sidewalk café along the north edge of the park, I’m walking back uptown and look up to see the iconic spire of the Empire State Building, lighted in some of my favorite colors against a crystal clear night sky.
The ESB was captured here through my trusty quarter-century-young
28-80mm f/2.8-4 L-Series lens at its 80mm setting on the new 5D.
