This site has moved to another blog called, ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. There will me no further posts to this site. The new site will continue so show my regular shooting progress, but will also contain other topics on photography, such as hands-on equipment and software reviews, historical information on photography, and much more.

When it was set up, the DAILY STOCK SHOT PROJECT was supposed to be a one year project. Last year I extended the project another year due to the popularity of the site, but now it is time to move on.

If you wish to continue following, please visit my new blog at ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY and save it as a new link.

Today I continued photographing for my book project, "Looking Up at New York".  This building on 12th Street is one of my favorites in all of New York.  It is the New School for Social Service designed by Joseph Urban and built in 1931.  It has a very Bauhaus, Art Deco look to it with the lateral brick work stripes.  In the 1930's this became home to the "intellegentia" who were fleeing the Nazis in the prelude to WWII.

The building faces north on a very narrow street and is enclosed by trees making it very difficult to photograph.  I had taken many photos in the past, but went back again with the Nikon D800 because of its ability to deliver a full dynamic range in difficult circumstances.  I wasn't disappointed.  Even in the photo below the D800 was able to shoot directly into the late sun and still produce full detail in the building.
