NEW YORK NEW YORK – Some Calder sculpture has appeared in the plaza in front of the Seagrams Building. I’m rushed today so I paused for a few moments to shoot details with my f.95 Noctilux lens. Nothing tectonic here from a photography standpoint.

Day 1,853 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

GUERNICA SPAIN – We had a long and interesting hike today that led us through the Forest of Oma, a large scale project by an artist named Agustín Ibarrola. You’ll get the idea from the pictures below. I’m sticking to my guns on shooting black and white only – you’ll have to take my word that Ibarrola’s tree paintings are colorful.

Day 1,767 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – More Alice Aycock sculpture on the Park Avenue islands. I’ll be coming back to these from time to time. And of course Second Avenue, which is always messed up by subway construction.

Day 1,618 of one picture a day for the rest of my life.

TURKS AND CAICOS – I got bored with the beach today so I found myself without a picture fairly late in the day. Got this with my iPhone in a friend’s apartment complex. I’m showing it in the original color and translated into black and white.

Day 1,603 of one photo a day for the rest of my life.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – It’s literally too cold to go out. So I collected a couple of candidates for shot of the day from around the house, taking breaks from sitting in front of a fire and reading. Here’s a plate on a wall in the kitchen. It’s from New Mexico, from the Acoma Pueblo which produces brilliant art. Taken with my Sony Alpha 7 and a Leica Summicron lens.

Day 1,564 of my daily photo blog. Some people call these “phlogs”.
