WARREN CONNECTICUT – Shooting early summer landscape around the house today with my Sony A7Riii (not the black and white converted camera) and the very good Sony 16-35mm zoom. Nice images for online applications but not quite there for printing large.
Day 3159 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
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.
Day 2,650 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day six years ago (day 459): winter landscape.
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.
Day 2,649 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day 7 years ago day 92 of 1 photo a day the rest of my life: Wedding dress.
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:
Day 2648 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day seven years ago (day 91): look up on Sixth Avenue.
