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.

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.

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.

THE BIG ISLAND, HAWAII – A dreaded travel day – truly so because the trip home is 14 hours long, including the layover in Honolulu. I don’t focus well, visually, on travel days so it’s always a scramble to fulfill my “one photograph every day . . .” pledge. I managed a few snapshots of tropical greenery with my iPhone before departing.
