WARREN CONNECTICUT – A drone shot of fall foliage (in black and white) and ground level foliage with my Leica Monochrom. I didn’t shoot film today because my darkroom stuff is in New York and I need to do same day developing if I’m going to keep up with my photo a day project.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I shot around the house today looking for easy subjects for tomorrow, when I’m shooting . . . FILM! I’ve purchased a Leica M3 film body from 1954, the year of this camera’s introduction. It’s in perfect condition cosmetically. I plan on running a few rolls of film through it before sending it off to Don Goldberg for an overhaul – the right repairman can typically put these cameras into like-new operating condition. So watch this space tomorrow.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – A reminder: my Leica 50mm APO Summicron lens (which I call the Luxocron) is back from being serviced and is in use lending its magic to pedestrian subjects, in this case a gas tank.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I took a walk today in a neighbor’s woods where he stores disused farm equipment. Shot with my Sony A7rii and my Leica f.95 Noctilux lens (used wide open in this image), which results in characteristic edgy bokeh. Converted to black and white with my own formula, an attempt to match film response. The Nocti is actually easier to focus on the Sony than it is on a Leica body.

Day 2,880 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

On this day seven years ago (day 323): Infrared abstract on 57th Street.
