WARREN CONNECTICUT – today’s image is a farm stand. It really is a farm stand, actually on a farm owned by the family of our neighbors, the Tanners, since the late 18th Century. The corn is freshly picked within the hour, which make a huge difference. Note the honor payments system. This is a small town.

CORNWALL BRIDGE CONNECTICUT – My i35mm lens has finally come back from Leica after receiving a general cleaning and adjustment. A long wait but a lovely lens. I’ll be shooting a fair amount with it over the next few days. Big news on Twitter – links to photos no longer count toward the 140 character limit, so I get 24 more characters to work with!

Day 2515 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

NEWBURGH NEW YORK – I drove up here today to meet with a friend, Luke Pontifell, who founded and owns Thornwillow Press, a printing business that specializes in beautiful books and perfect stationary = Luke is unique in the United States in keeping these arts alive (and in fact vibrant). I made the trip to photograph Luke’s plant and to discuss doing a gravure edition of some of my images.

Newburgh is one of the upstate towns that feels like it’s seen better days. Actually much better days. It’s only about 60 miles north of New York City and is located on a bluff overlooking the Hudson River so it’s full of potential, but it’s economically depressed, but it may be on the verge of being rediscovered (for example Dia Beacon is just across the Newburgh Bridge, a 10 minute drive from Luke’s plant.

A sensational day. I haven’t been able to edit it down to one image, so apologies for the clutter.

Day 1,979 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

On this day five years ago (day 153): Ca$h for your Warhol. A pawn shop with a sense of humor? This image was mistakenly originally posted as March 16, 2010. It’s actually March 17. There are a bunch of images that actually were taken on March 17 so my string is unbroken.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – This was a productive day of shooting around Warren and New Preston. Most of our family members have departed so it’s a bit quieter. Still shooting my Leica Monochrom and antique Carl Zeiss lens.
