N.Y.P.D Pizza

After my treatment at the Bodine Center For Radiation Therapy, I had a follow-up appointment with my eye specialist. We checked in, and I was seen 5 minutes after that. Therapy was quick, about five minutes, and we had a lot more time than I expected between my treatment and my appointment. We strolled along 11th Street toward Walnut Street.

I stopped when I noticed the restaurant. I thought it was humorous. I think it's interesting that the best pizza in Philadelphia is from a place called N.Y.P.D.

When I started taking these “after radiation treatment” images, I wanted to use one of my vintage film lenses mounted to my Fujifilm X-T2 with Fotodiox lens adapter. I thought it would be cool.

But after a few weeks of shooting street scenes, I have learned that I often have just seconds to raise the camera to my face, compose, and push the shutter button. With time, I could learn to quickly focus the manual lens using the focus peaking feature of the Fuji.
