1. A big happy birthday nod to photojournalist Alfred Eisenstaedt who was born in Germany this day in 1898.  Known for his candid photography, Eisenstaedt employed 35mm Leica’s throughout much of his life as his primary workhorses.  His early years were privy to many sociopolitical events including the meeting between Hitler and Mussolini in Italy, and one of Nazi Propoganda Minister Joseph Goebbels, which earned him a scolding once Goebbels discovered the photographers Jewish heritage.  Between 1936 and 1972, Eisenstaedt worked as a staff photographer for Life magazine, his photos appearing on the cover 90 times.  Whether you recognize the name or not, Eisenstaedt took some of the more iconic photos from the last 80 years, including the famous V-J Day in Times Square, The Ice Skating Waiter at St. Moritz, and numerous others.  Enclosed is a photograph taken of the clock at Penn Station in New York City, a perhaps much less iconic photograph, but nonetheless a great example of the marriage between a keen eye and a talented hand.
