SKYLINE DRIVE VIRGINIA – Our tourism schedule called for the Skyline Drive today – on of the great scenic routes in the country, located in the Shenandoah Mountains here in Western Virginia. There was just one unanticipated problem. Fog. Dense, can’t see the road in front of the car fog. The images are actually the best of our trip.
Day 1,825 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – All day meetings interfered with photography but we had a chance to hang around Broadway for a few minutes on our way to dinner. Taken with my Leica Monochrom and 35mm Summilux lens. Three frames stitched.
BREWSTER NEW YORK AND WARREN CONNECTICUT – Another day of shooting fall foliage with my Monochrom. This time with a 35mm Simmulux FLE lens. I focused on relative close ups to find some textures that the black and white camera could get some traction on. On the way back to New York this afternoon we stopped at the Red Rooster Drive-In in Brewster. Not many of these left. There’s a nice outdoor eating area; we overheard the conversion of some seniors at the next table: “Now isn’t this better than Macdonalds?” Yup.
PAGET BERMUDA – We’re staying at the Coral Beach Club, which we were given an introduction to by a friend’s aunt way back when we were first married. We’re actually here with our children to celebrate our anniversary (today) and Maria’s birthday (yesterday). Still chugging along with my Monochrom. The weather was cloudy today – remember what I said about the reliability of the weather in Bermuda? Anyway, some images, first of the church of the oldest Protestant congregation in the Western Hemisphere:
An interior of the same church (done with the Monochrom and my 18mm Super Elmar):
