I’m taking a few days off following the OpenSolaris 2008.05 release to attend a wedding in New York. Here are a couple of better shots from Manhattan, where I spent the weekend:
The Roasting Plant, an innovative coffee shop/roastery; everything is automated and all of the machinery was designed by the owners. Beans swirl through the store in pneumatic tubes (click for larger versions):
Four seconds at Grand Central:
MOMA (from the Eliasson retrospective):
The view from Central Park:
I haven’t yet had time to even do a basic editing pass over these. The MOMA shot needs a bit of effort, I think. I like the Grand Central shot quite a bit, but I really wish I’d had image stabilization. At 100% the fine details are blurry. I had a gorillapod, but the shot was tough to get, as people’s footsteps on the stairway I was shooting from caused a fair amount of jiggle.
