WARREN CONNECTICUT – I’m a landscape guy who lives in the Eastern United States. I’ve written in the past about the challenges of Eastern landscape: deciduous forrest presses in on you; there are hills not mountains; dramatic points of view are scarce; there are people and their artifacts everywhere making images of virgin acadian paradise difficult. One approach to this problem is the Robert Adams approach – shoot what there is and the hell with you if you don’t find it interesting. So here are the woods near our house in good winter light.
Park-like setting near our house. This isn’t the first time that I’ve experimented with these shadows.
Residue of the guy who sold us a portion of this property.
All shot with my Leica Monochrom and 35mm Summilux FLE lens.
On this day one year ago: really close. Taken with a Rikoh GRD camera – one of many compact cameras that I’ve tried and rejected.
