NEW YORK NEW YORK – A rushed day – today I literally took one picture – a butt depository in the alley behind our building. But at least the light is good. My Leica Nonochrom turning the mundane into mumdane plus.

Day 2,949 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

DICKSON TENNESSEE – You read that correctly. We made a flash trip down here on some personal business. Images taken with my Leica Monochrom. I’m getting good use out of my relatively new Leica 90mm macro lens.

THE BRONX NEW YORK and NEW MILFORD CONNECTICUT – I drove up to Warren today to drop off our dogs (since Maria and I will be traveling in the next week), stopping in The Bronx to catch a warehouse and in New Milford to catch some flags. I’m shooting film today in my Leica M7 and medium format Mamiya 7 II – in both cases I’m shooting Ilford PanF Plus. Developing and scanning add several hours per roll to my workflow, but well worth it when I have time.

Day 2,943 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Another film day. I’m shooting with a Mamiya 7 and 43mm superwide lens (which is equivalent to and actually based on the design of the Hasselblad Superwide), one of the best wide lenses ever. I’m experimenting with film types – today I’m shooting with Ilford PanF Plus, which is nearly grainless on the Mamiya’s 6×7 cm negative. I’m also shooting with a Leica M7, which I will either keep or not once my M3 comes back from the shop where it is getting an overhaul.

I’m loving the tonality of these images. Pedestrian subjects are made special.

Day 2,924 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
