NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Cocktails with an old friend who runs a publishing house that happens to have published a lot of winners of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Later, at home, a lovely moonlit night out our dining room window – not a perfect image because I shot fast, using a beanbag on the window sill rather than a tripod.
This is day 1,617 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day one year ago (day 1,252): Candles.

More Baby V

On this day last year: Friends.
ENGLISH HARBOR ANTIGUA – Maria spent the morning on a couple of dives from here so I had a chance to walk around and absorb some tourist color at Nelson’s dockyard. This was the home of the British fleet in the Caribbean in the 18th century. Nice Georgian architecture and some good local faces. Here’s Maria’s scuba instructor and a guy who has just arrived with three teammates from having rowed here across the Atlantic from the Canary Islands in a specially built boat in 59 days. Quite a feat. I’m also providing a sample of Georgian buildings.
Day 1,571 of one photo every day for the rest of my life. I didn’t managed to get it down to one images today. What I really mean is at least one photo every day.
Rowed form the Canary Islands

On this day four years ago: Triborough Bridge.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – I met Francesca, our daughter, at the Brasserie for breakfast and then spent the morning in the office. Here’s Francesca outside of the Brasserie and the Lava Lamp in my office, both taken with my Leica Monochrom and 75mm Summicron lens.
I could not decide which I preferred to I tweeted both this morning and I’ll let the responses to the tweets help me edit.
Day 1,547 of this ongoing project to take one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day one year ago: Zilch. Ugh. Some days it just doesn’t happen.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – We’ve taken advantage of being in New York on a weekend to go out to dinner with some friends to a local place offering French comfort food. The light’s very low but not bad so portraits all around. Earlier in the day harsh light on the street. Both with my Leica Monocrom and 75mm Summicron lens.
On this day last year: Grating.
