Industry City, New York

Went out to Industry City in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, last weekend. They’ve turned several massive old industrial buildings into a massive, hipster (with kids) retail complex. We were intending to follow a self-guided walking tour which included artists’ studios on upper floors – they were all closed. So there was lots of Covid-style eating establishments and trendy retail, Halloween decorations, period architecture, public art (to come in future posts, but nothing especially galvanizing).

Reflections

Since the pandemic struck I’ve stopped going to the office. that means I no longer have to carry a messenger-style bag large enough to hold my MacBook, charger and other work supplies in addition to my camera, spare batteries, lenses, charger, etc. All of which allows me to carry a much smaller lighter bag. At the same time, my X-T4 arrived so now, in my smaller, somewhat lighter, smaller bag I carry the X-T4, usually with the 23mm f2 lens on it, the X-T3 with the longish 55-200 on it for those very occasional long shots, as well as another street lens (18-55mm kit zoom), extra batteries and a couple of other knick-knacks. The point of this overlong gear recitation is that I occasionally take a shot or two with the X-T3 and the long lens, then stuff it back in the bottom of the bag. Last week I decided to see what was on that chip and so, over the next several posts, instead of my usual more or less contemporaneous and sequential shots I’ll be delving back into shots taken at different times and places. You may not be able to tell the difference!
