This is a panel of 4 images taken in New York in October 2013. The panel is titled “Subway Baggage” and its being entered in a competition at Hampstead Photographic Society next week.

I spent a very enjoyable week in New York in late October and used it as an opportunity to test the Canon EOS M with the EF-M 22mm f/2 STM.

This is a link to my New York Gallery and contains some shots from outside the Lincoln Center in New York taken during October 2013. All were taken with a Canon EOS M with a 22mm lens.
