WARREN CONNECTICUT – Another . . . drone day. I got up with the dun this morning and got lucky with some good grazing light. I have’t really edited these as I’m still sorting out what I like and don’t like. Later in the day we visited a friend in upstate New York who is renovating a major inn named Troutbeck.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – More work with the drone. I used it today to get angles other than straight down – capturing ordinary images that would have otherwise required a tall ladder or a cherry picker.  I’m experimenting with stitches as well.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – A couple of good developments today. First, we’ve actually finished three rooms in the renovation and expansion project that we started here late last summer – see a finished bedroom below.

Second, my drone arrived. I spent a couple of hours learning how to turn it on and take off and land, and finally to get it airborne and navigated around here. On the first major outing I ran it into some tree branches – it’s good at avoiding obstacles but not small wires and branches – without major damage. I found out why the manufacturer includes a couple of extra sets of rotor blades. You’re going to see a lot of shots from high angles on weekends as I master it. The challenge of course is taking photographs that have interest beyond their point of view.

So here you go:
