WARREN CONNECTICUT – The wasn’t much opportunity for psychic focus on photography today – my attention was diverted to preparations for some client meeting that start tomorrow and preparations for our departure to India on Friday of next week. Also, the light here was flat and dull. I ended up experimenting with some “shoot up” angles, clearly not as interesting here as in Manhattan.

Day 1,914 of one photograph a day for the rest of my life.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – there were plenty of reasons to stay in the house today, starting with high winds and way sub-freezing temperatures. So . . . I collected my images for the day from around the house. Here we are with my Leica Monochrom and the fabulous Carl Zeiss 15mm rectilinear wide angle lens. Next weekend we will be back inside working on holiday decorations.

Day 1,885 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – September is one of the busiest months of the year for me professionally. I squeezed a shot of nice light on the interior of our house here with my Leica M and Luxochron lens. Converted to black and white in Lightroom with a preset that I’ve developed for the purpose.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – Another day of showshoeing – this time in a different direction. We revisited the junk truck that I’ve posted on this site previously, and later did some work comparing lenses shooting our house from a tripod. Both images taken with my Leica MM and 35mm Summicron lens, which I subsequently sold. I purchased a copy of the current Leica 35mm Suumicron to test side by side with my Leica 35mm Summilux Asph lens. After a couple of weeks of shooting both i decided that I like the rendering of the Summilux better so I sold the Summicron. Buying and selling good used Leica lenses involves very little cost because the market is so robust.
