NEW YORK NEW YORK – This was one of the worst air travel days of my life, thanks to American Airlines. The aircraft that was supposed to take us to Antigua had a serious maintenance problem and had to be taken out of service. There was no American 737 at JFK so a replacement had to be flown from Laguardia. They loaded us on to the new plane but we sat on the tarmac while they topped up catering. Then there wasn’t a tractor available to push us off of the gate. Nine hours late. And we’re traveling with our son and daughter in law and their two-year old. Misery. I got a few images around the terminal but was too grumpy really to get much done.
Day 2354 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
TOKYO – I’m here on business but have a fair amount of time to shoot with my Leica Q (the best point and shoot that I’ve ever had – very, very fast and the 28mm lens is a dream) and my iPhone 6S. I’ve had a lot of trouble editing so I’m showing a mini-gallery. I’m running a week behind my usual posting schedule, in part because of the number of images to sort through.
Day 2160 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
INFLIGHT AND TOKYO JAPAN – So it’s a little hard to say what we mean by “one picture every day” on a “day” when we spend 16 hours on an airplane and pass through eleven time zones. I hedged by bets here by taking images on the plane and immediately from the hotel window when I arrived, to make sure that I didn’t miss “today”, whatever that means.
Day 2159 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day last year (day 1794): Birches. Birches, irresistible trees to a guy with a camera.
JODHPUR INDIA – Well here we are, on our last day in India. I snapped this at a little temple that’s in the boutique hotel that we’re staying in out in the desert here. Then the descent into the air travel system – 24+ hours back to New York.
Day 1,940 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
BOSTON MASSACHUSETTS – This started as a travel day with a trip here from New York. You may remember that travel days aren’t my best: the hassles of travel make it difficult for me to concentrate on the visual. I ended up shooting a picture of my iPad with my iPhone. It’s not Caravaggio but it keeps the string alive.
Day 1,860 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
