WARREN CONNECTICUT – there were plenty of reasons to stay in the house today, starting with high winds and way sub-freezing temperatures. So . . . I collected my images for the day from around the house. Here we are with my Leica Monochrom and the fabulous Carl Zeiss 15mm rectilinear wide angle lens. Next weekend we will be back inside working on holiday decorations.
Day 1,885 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
KENT and WARREN CONNECTICUT – I’m continuing to experiment with my newly-repaired Leica f.95 Noctilux, shooting landscape and still life wide open, with a neutral density filter if necessary. The results are more dreamy than the hart-edged look that I’ve been cultivating for a lifetime, and thus a really good exercise for me. I’ve also included an image of Baby Victoria, our fabulous 12-month old granddaughter.
Day 1,851 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – We got a late start driving up here today and ran into endless traffic – actually a bit unusual. I was in no mood for photography but pretty good late afternoon light gave me an opportunity to capture an image.
Day 1,850 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day three years ago (day 754): Francesca’s birthday. Looking back I’ve selected a different image from November 11, 2011.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – This is the end of the Frankfurt Book Fair. Maria goes to this thing every year. I mean every year. Both last year and this we made plans for her to decompress post-Frankfurt so October 10 finds me at home ramping up for travel. That means still lifes and closeups around the house.
I’m experimenting with a new camera, a Leica T, which has an attractive form factor and good live view, and works well with legacy manual focus Leica lens. Today I added a close up adapter and shot around the house.
Last year I was in the same spot and shot a still life with the last tomatoes of the year from our garden.
Day 1,821 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – Here’s a challenge in my ongoing photo every day project. I’m sick as a dog with a really severe head cold, a sinus headache and a raw sore throat. I feel like I’ve been hit by a bus. I didn’t manage to get out of the house today. Relatively late in the day I managed to strap a very wide (12mm) lens onto my Leica Monochrome and put it in the oven with a self timer, photographing myself through the oven window. That’s it. My image for the day.
Day 1,810 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – I’m flying to London this evening. As a travel day this is rare as I actually had a chance to capture some images as I went about my day – travel days are usually a disaster for me from a photographic standpoint. Here are a few from close to home.
Day 1,737 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – So my very sore heel was diagnosed yesterday as a torn plantar fascia, a common occurrence, it turns out. The remedy involves limiting activity and waiting, among other things, neither of which am I particularly good at. This is going to impinge on my mobility for the next month or so, which limits the scope of things that come in front of my lens. So today is a little more boring than yesterday, and tomorrow may be more boring yet.
Day 1,679 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – What looks like snow here is actually a sheet of ice. I wandered around a bit, but not very far, and found this. I’m getting genuinely tired of using “winter” and “Warren” tags.
The second image is a screen shot of my Twitter page showing 10,000 followers, which I celebrated today.
This is day 1,613 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day four years ago (day 152): Cash for your Warhol. This image as originally published was in color (taken with a Leica M9). I’ve reworked it, translating to black and white, which I really prefer for this image. Click through on the link if your interested in the original version.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – I’m writing this in New York where we live most of the time. The images from February 15 and 16 were taken in Connecticut where we have a weekend house. I edited the February 15 and 16 images in Connecticut and somehow only brought a portion of them back to New York. This may not be the best image of the day. I’ll be back in Connecticut next weekend and will update this post if I find something better. This photo-a-day thing is very demanding in terms of having a set and consistent workflow. I’ve edited this entry to include the first two images below. I was separated from these files when I first prepared this post.
Day 1,584 of one picture a day for the rest of my life.
