Subject: [Leica] THE GATES in Central Park

The Cristo "wrapping" of Central Park with gates drew a large crowd 
last Saturday.  Here are a few pix from the day.  All were made with 
my M7 on Royal Supra 400 with the camera on Auto.  Trying to relate 
to something so large was difficult so I focused on people and 
details for the most part.

Everyone was taking pictures.  I must have 40 shots of cameras held 
at arms length.  I hardly ever saw anyone using his viewfinder.

And a few shots of the exhibit.  Warning:  Orange overload follows.

and a "leica-pan" shot:

I reported on the unusual numbers of Leicas seen in the Park a couple 
of days ago.  Here is the most unusual camera I saw:

We spoke briefly.  It's a 360-degree video system and he was walking 
through the exhibit to document it.  Hope his feet hold out.  The 
exhibit is 23 miles long.  Sorry I wasn't able to find out more about 
his project and who he is.

I'll  probably post a few more shots later.  There are another six or 
so I'd like to put up from the exhibit and about the same number from 
my visit to the Met.  Stay tuned.

Comments encouraged.  Many thanks.
