MANHATTAN AND WARREN CONNECTICUT – Images of people today I shoot these with my Sony a7rii which, because of its eye focus feature, is an excellent tool for shooting people. The camera, combined with the very good 24-70 Sony GM lens, works ideally for people in context.
Day 3144 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
ANTIGUA – We try to come here, our favorite Winter get away, two or three times over the winter. This presents a challenge photographically as there is only so much that can be said about perfect beaches and palm trees. So hunker down for a boring stretch over the next week. All shot with my Son A7rii converted to black and white only (its Bayer filter has been removed).

On this day five years ago (day 1256 of one photo every day)): Still winter in Warren CT.
ANTIGUA – We hung out on the beach today, with me scrambling a bit to find a suitable image. The first image is Maria in her natural habitat shot with my Leica Monochrom and 50mm Summicron Asp. with a neutral density filter to permit shooting wide open to isolate the foreground.
Day 2,730 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
ANTIGUA – Today I worked with my Leica Monochrom and Leica 50mm Summicron Asp. lens (which I call the “Luxochron”), shooting wide open with a .9 ND filter (three stops). The out-of-focus rendering of this lens is amazingly appealing (to my eyes) for such a highly corrected lens. The close up of the water lily flower was taken with my iPhone 7, which gives good service as a close up camera.
