Man in Black
The intersection at 47th street and 6th Ave. seems to have some steam issues. It seems to be pouring out of every drain, manhole cover and pothole. This shot was taken with my new favorite toy, a Canon G9. While I love my D200, it was starting to wear on my back and shoulders a bit. So far, the G9 is looking good. It’s lacking in the wide angle, and shallow depth of field departments, but makes up for it with image stabilization and compactness. I am finding that I am much more likely to carry it in hand as I walk to and from work in the mornings.
I’d like to give a shout out to David Beckerman of New York Photography. David was kind enough to sell me his lightly used G9 at a very fair price. Hopefully he left a bit of his talent in the camera for me to absorb.

Did they stack the barrels in that picture?
The orange and white thing is a “steam chimney”. It vents the steam away from street level… here is a link to some better views : http://www.citynoise.org/article/2323
That’s cool… I’ve never seen those before… Last time I was in NY was 93… must be a “new” thing.
