WARREN CONNECTICUT – We seem to be vying with Seattle for the foggiest place in the known universe. Yes. It’s foggy today in Connecticut. And four years ago it was foggy on April 26 on Park Avenue. There are lots of pictures of fog that I could have posted today (both current and historical): these were just the best looking ones. All shot with my Leica Monochrom – the perfect camera for the weather.

Day 1,654 of one photo a day for the rest of my life.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I made foggy day images today. I’ve done this before but that’s only because we have a lot of foggy days here. These are taken with my Leica S2 medium format camera with a 70mm lens. Three frames stitched in Photoshop.

Day 1,548 of this ongoing project to take one picture every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I shot this afternoon with a long lens. This usually doesn’t work for me – I see best with a wide angle in my hands. The lens is a 280mm Leica R with a Leica 2s tele-extender. These are out my window in the early evening. The last image required hand stacking two images to get shadow detail in the brick.

I’ve done a careful recount of total days on this project without a missed day. I’m going to start posting the running total daily. Here you go

WARREN CONNECTICUT – One weather options this winter seems to be heavy rain and fog. These are actually pretty good conditions for landscape photography. Here are three images taken with my Leica Monochrom and 1958 Dual Range Summicron lens.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – More fog. Leica Monochrom and a major legacy lens. I’ve told the story of this lens previously. The lens cell was made by Carl Zeiss Jena in 1945. The Soviets relocated the Carl Zeiss business to Kiev as war reparations. The lens cell was put in a Leica screw mount focusing mount and sold in the west, probably on the gray market. It’s a remarkably high performance lens with a lovely signature, one of few in existence. It’s rendering works particularly well on gray days.
