(Jun 15) This photoblog now bids adieu to the Sony DSC-N2 I bought in a rush to replace the short-lived Sony whatever that came after the Sony Minidisc, which came after the Kodak somethingorother. My main concern when buying the N2 was that Billy was nearing the end of his days.

(Jun 15) 590 Madison Avenue was once IBM’s “World Headquarters”. Increasingly it appears I’ve made my last visit there. I wish I could have gotten better photos from there, the reflections in these are terrible.

The blue reflection is driving me nuts now. It’s the reflection of twilight from the windows.

That says “Gemini” on there, btw.
