NEW YORK NEW YORK – We made a pilgrimage to the Japan Society (near the UN) for the brilliant Sugimoto show, the Gates of Heaven, and caught a relatively new vest-pocket part on the way. We caroled on Park Avenue in the evening at the Brick Church ceremony lighting the Christmas trees on Park Avenue.
Day 2,971 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – I shot around the house today looking for easy subjects for tomorrow, when I’m shooting . . . FILM! I’ve purchased a Leica M3 film body from 1954, the year of this camera’s introduction. It’s in perfect condition cosmetically. I plan on running a few rolls of film through it before sending it off to Don Goldberg for an overhaul – the right repairman can typically put these cameras into like-new operating condition. So watch this space tomorrow.
Day 2,921 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
KENT CONNECTICUT – We dropped by to se our friend Greg Randall at RT Facts, a design company here. Greg deals in very large chunks of architectural stone and industrial steel. I was particularly taken by the stone Sphynx – there’s a bit of a Pre-Rafielite look about him.
Day 2,913 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – We used to call unseasonably warm periods in the early Fall “Indian Summer” – I’m not certain what we call them now but we’re having one. This was an opportunity to shoot truly pedestrian scenes in lovely light. Also . . . our six-year-old orchard is finally bearing more apples than we can possibly eat. Images shot with my Leica Monochrom and a 50mm Summicron V.IV lens.
Day 2,899 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
