NEW YORK NEW YORK – A major cold rainy day. More ugly weather. I shot out our window with a long lens. This is two frames stitched taken with a 135mm lens.

Day 1,609 of one photo every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I shot this afternoon with a long lens. This usually doesn’t work for me – I see best with a wide angle in my hands. The lens is a 280mm Leica R with a Leica 2s tele-extender. These are out my window in the early evening. The last image required hand stacking two images to get shadow detail in the brick.

I’ve done a careful recount of total days on this project without a missed day. I’m going to start posting the running total daily. Here you go

WARREN CONNECTICUT – One weather options this winter seems to be heavy rain and fog. These are actually pretty good conditions for landscape photography. Here are three images taken with my Leica Monochrom and 1958 Dual Range Summicron lens.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – A rainy day. I guess this is what we’ve been saving for. Out with my Monochrom and 18mm lens catching rain and fog with a wide lens. Visually it’s hard to make headway against the sameness of days like this. Here are three tries:

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I drove up here this morning – my first time in Connecticut in over a month (apart from a flash trip to fetch Basil). Boy do I need this. I missed the most beautiful month of October in New England history, and arrive here today a driving rain. That’s the first image. Oh well. It cleared up later so I caught up with the end of the fall color. All taken with my medium format Leica S2.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – The conversations around here today were about people’s bad drive – the Saw Mill Parkway was closed because of flooding from torrential rains. Build an ark. Today is midway through what turned out to be three days of steady, heavy downpour. Demotivating to a guy who likes blue skies and puffy clouds. I’m going to push a bit on the technical side this weekend, so watch out for gimmicks. Today I tried to cut the gloom by using on-camera flash for landscape with my Leica M and Leica S, shooting for either very wide or very narrow depth of focus. Here are some example:

On this day last year: Why did I take this? Allow me a moment of public self-flagellation. Why on earth did I take this? I guess every year needs a worst picture but this looks like I was out to establish a low point.
