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.

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 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.

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.

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.
