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.
SAN DIEGO CALIFORNIA – I’m in San Diego for a reunion of my Marine Corps Officers Basic School class. For more on this click the link to my biography. This was a travel day so I didn’t get much in the way of images. I did visit the San Diego Zoo; I’m afraid that I’m joining the dyspeptic band that finds zoos sad and distasteful, so I couldn’t find any images. Anyway, here’s the pool in the hotel that we’re staying at.
Day 1,840 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day three years ago (day 744): Freak Blizzard. Yes, we were hit by a freak blizzard on October 29, 2011. A couple of images from Warren. This was one of the most destructive storms in our lifetime because the very heavy snow crushed millions of threes, which still had their leaves.
UNITED AIRLINES FLIGHT 414 – Travel days are hard for me as a daily photo blog guy. My gear is compacted into travel order so I do a lot with my iPhone. Here’s a surprise: there were major God-rays as we climbed out over the Central Valley from San Francisco.
This is day 1,562 in an unbroken string on my daily photo blog.
