TODI ITALY – We’ve been here for a while now. Sunflowers. Stone farmhouses turned into weekend villas. Vineyards. Romanesque Churches. I’m starting to run in circles and probably need a break from Unbria.
Day 2488 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day two years ago (day 1758): Brooklyn steps.
CHICAGO ILLINOIS – My daughter, Francesca, brought me here for a combined birthday/fathers day present: dinner tonight at Aiinea, currently number 9 on the San Peligrino list of the world’s 50 best restaurants. Much of the weekend was spent stuck in the air transport system as a result of weather delays. Today’s image could have been anywhere – we didn’t have time for any of the iconic Chicago places.
Day 1,703 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
JACKSONVILLE FLORIDA – Where I grew up (check out my biography – it’s Utah) the highest praise that your could lavish on a restaurant was “Well they’ve got a pretty good steak there.” So I’m right at home here having a pretty good steak for dinner. I captured it with my iPhone.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – First an image with my Leica Monochrom and Luxochron lens, looking up in Manhattan in the early evening. This is a great setup for shooting Manhattan at night handheld. This can result in some nice images particularly after the end of daylight savings time next week because it is dark at 6:00 when buildings are still full illuminated by lights in offices.
I joined some friends in going out to South Williamsburg for dinner at a restaurant called XiXa. Pronounced “shiksa” by the owner. No kidding. It was supposed to be a Southwestern dive but it turned out to be serious Asian-Mexican fusion at a very high level. A major upside surprise.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – I’ve got a lot going on, and on top of everything else today is the run up to a travel day – I’m flying th Munich tomorrow to meet Maria (who is at the Frankfurt Book Fair) to be her spa buddy for a week. I settled for some of our home grown tomatoes today (rotten spot and all), with a Leica Monochrom and Luxochron lens.
On this day last year: Pumpkins. Hmmm . . . this is a vegetables kind of time of year.
