After recovering from the Brooklyn Half Marathon on Saturday morning, I spent a lot of time walking around on Sunday with both cameras in tow. The following pictures are shot with the Leica M6 and Kodak Tri-X 400 film. I extended the developing time for about 40 seconds and there is definitely a difference in the shots with heavier blacks. While Kate was shopping in Soho, I prowled around looking for new art. Not too much since the last time, but I thought this was interesting.

Had to go back for this amazing bookstore sign. I think it was on Worth Street in Tribeca.
Love this sign as well, The Bondy Camera and Appliances Store, Chinatown/Lower East Side
This jewelry store is just past Bowery, still in Chinatown heading into the Lower East Side
Love, love, love the facade and sign of the Cup & Saucer on the corner of Canal and Eldridge. The brick above the diner is almost completely worn down and the paint is heavily peeled. It's a gorgeous corner diner though.
I couldn't stop staring at the Ernest Sewn storefront when Kate and I were having brunch at Barrio Chino Sunday morning, but I didn't have a camera with me. Being the huge dork that I am, I veered back over there later in the day to take a few shots.
Here's the store from the side.
And right before I hopped on the bus home, I snapped a shot of the Tenement Museum's "backyard" complete with hanging laundry on Allen Street.
