WARREN CONNECTICUT – I got out and around the garden for a few hours today. Everything is up and the mottled light was fabulous. I decided to shoot very wide and very close, and could
t decide which image I liked best.
Day 1,690 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – Well here we are in Connecticut with late spring plant life, really nice light, and a black and white camera. I pushed myself to a very wide lens today, again trying to escape the mundane.
Day 1,689 of one photo a day for the rest of my life.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – So my very sore heel was diagnosed yesterday as a torn plantar fascia, a common occurrence, it turns out. The remedy involves limiting activity and waiting, among other things, neither of which am I particularly good at. This is going to impinge on my mobility for the next month or so, which limits the scope of things that come in front of my lens. So today is a little more boring than yesterday, and tomorrow may be more boring yet.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I shot wide today. Early spring is winding down here but the light is lovely.
Day 1,675 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day two years ago (day 579): North Woods, Central Park. I reviews May 17, 2011 as I prepared this post and concluded that I liked one of the outtakes better than I like the image I posted. Here you go:
WARREN CONNECTICUT – At last. A sunny day. We’re in full Spring flower here, which I’m of course presenting in black and white. This hopefully mitigates the picture post card effect that is this season’s biggest risk.
Day 1,669 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
WARREN and WASHINGTON CONNECTICUT – We dropped in this evening to see our friend Barbara Robinson and to visit her rain-soaked garden, called Brush Hill. The first image below is looking up in our garden; the is from Barbara’s.
As you will see from the tiny red note below the date above this was posted on May 17. Yesterday this site was down for about four hours for maintenance and migration to a new, faster, server. This is a sign of success: the upgrade was in response to increases in traffic. We’re sorry for any inconvenience.
Day 1,668 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day two years ago (day 938): Outside the ICP. Tree frames stitched.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – I walked through the Park in lovely light today for my annual eye doctor check up. All is well. I was functionally blind walking back through the park because my eyes had been dilated, but managed to get a few images with my Leica Monochrom.
Day 1,665 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – More today on the theme Spring color in black and white. It’s hard not to respond to nature strutting its stuff in this urban environment. Doing it in black and white makes it a little less mundane. Taken with my f.95 Noctilux lens and an neutral density filter so I could shoot wide open. This gives me very narrow depth of field and the Nocti’s characteristic “bokeh” – the character of the out of focus parts of the image made by it.
