ANTIGUA – The sky was startling this morning after heavy rains last night. I shot about 160 degrees of sunrise, stitching five frames. I’ve included the final image and the the middle frame below.

Day 2,690 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – This was a first day of Spring kind of day. I was up with the dawn’s first light with camera in hand.

Day 1,640 of one photo every day for the rest of my life.

On this day two years ago (day 910): Out my window at four different times. This is a riff on some of my earlier work where I set up on a tripod and took the same scene 24 times at one-hour intervals.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I got up early and walked down Park Avenue — my morning commute — to a day of meetings. I got sunrise out our window with a Leica M and 280mm lens (which is fussy to use because focus is critical and it demands good tripod technique), more sunrise on Park Avenue with my Leica Monochrom, and a grid within a grid out the window of a conference room later in the day with my iPhone. I’ve posted them in reverse order because I like the grid image best.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – We’ve had a pattern here in the past few weeks where most days have a high overcast, but at sunrise the sun peeks under it for a few minutes. So here we are in lovely early morning light looking straight up with my Leica M and an 18mm Super Elmar M lens.

Two takes on the same subject. Same camera but with my 35mm Leica Summicron v.IV, a lens from the 1970s known as the “bokeh king”.

On this day one year ago: Spring in Connecticut. Spring is arriving at least three weeks later this very cold year. But last year at this time . . . this year I’m working with my Monochrom a lot to avoid the Spring colors trap.

WASHINGTON DC – I’m here in DC at some client meetings. They start around 8:00 AM but that let’s me get up and catch the morning magic hour with such monuments and flowering stuff (there’s a lot of it) as are within walking range of our hotel. These are all with my Leica M and an 18mm Super Elmar M lens – my go to wide these days. That’s the same contrail in the first two images.
