WARREN CONNECTICUT – More familiar ground with my new Leica Monochrom 246. Today I shot some very old lenses that don’t couple properly with the rangefinder but which can be focussed using the camera’s live view feature. The first image is a with a 1936 Karl Zeiss 50mm Sonar f2.0 mounted on the camera with an exotic Contax to Leica adapter from the 1950s. Next is Basil wearing a t-shrt to cover up his stitches so he can’t scratch them.

Day 2039 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – We lent our apartment to our daughter, Francesca, for a party in honor of two of her friends who have achieved major life transitions. Of course Basil the Norwich Terrier was in attendance so here Francesca an he are, in blatant violation of my “no pictures of dogs” rule.

Day 1,677 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – This is more like it. Children and grandchild have arrived so the pace has picked up. Basil the Norwich Terrier seems to be in the middle of everything, looking for food in the Christmas wrappings.
