The Pope Visits NYC



This week New Yorkers celebrated the official start of fall and of course the historic arrival of Pope Francis and UN delegates.  Barricades made getting around the area pretty challenging for drivers but for travelers who ride the subway or walk, it wasn't much of an issue.
Today I was fortunate enough to get the chance to see the pope pass through Central Park. I positioned myself on a slight ridge in hope he would look my way as he passed in the popemobile. Using a 400mm lens on a Leica V-Lux at 800 ISO, I was pleased to get a few decent shots.




It's always interesting to look around at the sea of smartphones in the crowd as well. Basically every single arm was up capturing the moment. No surprise there!

Apple Watch Screen Images for OS2


 The new software for the Apple Watch allows you to choose an image and set that as your watch face.  I love this feature and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to locate images which "fit" the time location well.  The software also has an option to rotate images on the face each time you look at it - so if your camera roll has these or other images in it you can see them all day.

 These are some of my favorites so far and I hope to add to them shortly as I wander around NYC.  Enjoy them if you like.  All rights are mine for commercial use - but you can use them on your watch.








 The native resolution is 312x390 and I sized my images to 936x1170 so there is some ability to scroll in deeper if bored or would like to zoom to crop.

South Beach Miami Florida

 Heading down to South Beach is an easy and great trip.  One of the things that makes it so easy is the Amex Centurion Club.  Now located in LGA and Miami - this oasis changes the atmosphere of flying.  You can settle in for a full meal and relax in comfort before your flight.  And when we landed in Miami we popped into the club there before heading to the beach.  Lunch was served - massages offered and then it was Uber we go!




 






 Shot with the XQ2 and an H2O housing.  Easy to do and lots of fun!
 You cannot go wrong having a polarizer filter with you !


 

 Working on my watch reflection series still.

 One of my favorite travel accessories is the Benro Pocket pod along with the Mefoto sidekick - these two together are a powerhouse of versatility!  I use the sidekick for time-lapse mostly - as well as supporting my phone at my desk.  The pocket pod can be a great unit for the X100T and similar small cameras on the go.

Here you can see the main camera I brought to Miami.  I went low key with the X100T and had the 28mm adapter lens along with a polarizer.

The hotel lobby had a nice open spacious feel.











 I shot a sunrise time-lapse from the terrace.  I didn't want to chance a rain storm so I grabbed the ice tongs and a plastic bag and covered the camera while it spent the eight hours on the deck.  I set the camera on the intervalometer to begin at 6am and to run until 8:35am every three minutes.  Easy enough.  You can see the video here -
