When I went into the City to pick up the Elmar I introduced here a while back, I naturally brought a camera with me. I took the Leica IIIg with the Serenar 28/3.5 on it, with the idea that I would switch over to the new Elmar once I had it. On my way across town from Grand Central, I naturally passed through Bryant Park, one of my standard stops when shooting in NYC; there’s always something worth photographing there. Because I had the 28 on the camera, I also went into the adjoining NY Public Library and took a few shots of the architecture, which you can’t really do very effectively with anything longer. Having completed the transaction that got me the Elmar and screwing it onto the camera, I made my way back to the train, passing again through Bryant Park to try out the new lens. I stayed outside this time, but it was a nice day around lunchtime and there was no shortage of activity.
