    “Tried my Sixth Avenue panel idea this morning and I might have missed it. It was surprisingly hard to do because of the cars and trucks that park for just a few minutes. Also the cars that come whizzing by from both directions that you must shoot between [them]. You can’t use part of a car in one section. You must have all of it or nothing. I am just getting ready to develop the
    negatives and I am holding my breath. I think I will have to limit my panel to one block. The cross street is impossible as the angle of my lens is so narrow that it will not cover both sides of the cross street… The negatives for the panel look great—and now if I can make a set of matched prints!”
