Shot from Nikon D1 Serial number 000001

The architect Mies van der Rohe said "An interesting plainness is the most difficult thing to achieve." This quote has been one of the defining concepts of all of my artistic endeavors. 

This image is titled "Across the Street From Heaven" I shot this image on a Nikon D-1 serial number 0000001. I was blessed to be the beta tester for the D-1. 

This image was captured in JPEG because at the time there was no software to read
the raw file. I had to black tape the logo and even the marketing and product management team in the US had no idea I had the camera. The reason this image has it's name has to do with the restaurant I was in, Chez Michellet in New York City. The restaurant no longer exist but my friend Evangelina Sosa and I referred to this restaurant as "Heaven" because when you ate there the food had to have been made by God's personal chef and you had died and gone to heaven. The next day, which was a Monday, the city of New York stripped the building that was across the street from Heaven of all of the ivy on the walls so they could sand blast the building.

This image was captured with a Nikon D-1 camera with a 70-210mm D SERIES on Lexar Flash media.The file camera produced was an Adobe JPEG.

Final file is stored and scaled using Genuine Fractals.
