TURKS AND CAICOS ISLANDS – A very active day. Maria did two dives; I rode out on the dive boat and snorkeled. When we got back I had a long walk on the beach – Im on a program of walking at least seven miles a day (14,000 steps on my fitbit). We caught a sunset. Here you go:

Day 1,602 of one generally black and white photo every day for the rest of my life.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – A perfect day for a lovely party put together by some neighbors. As you scroll down you’ll see an Aunt Alice shot – a lineup of people squinting into the setting sun. I object to these in principle but have decided to start taking them as a documentary record. Complain to my editor if you don’t like it. All images take with my Leica S2 and 70mm lens.

On this day last year: Urban poetry. A construction site in Manhattan. Proof that color has a function, despite by bias toward black and white.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – A pretty good day for pictures. I’ve posted an “out my window” today (two frames stitched taken with my Leica M and a 35mm Summilus Asph lens. Out my window shots are usually a sign of desperation but because of enchanting light this was the best image from a day of pretty good images. Here you go:

On this day one year ago: The Charles. Here we are in Cambridge.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Back home. Our flight back was as bad as our flight going. Delayed five hours in Milan. A hassling arrival at JFK as we struggled to master the new Global Entry system. Ugh. Back home we unpacked in the midst of a major heat wave. Cowering in air conditioning. There was a really weird sunset. Captured with my Leica M9 and 24mm Summilux.

On this day one year ago: another sick day. Both of my July 7th shots, this year and last, feature out my window views.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Busy day with no time for photography. But as I was cleaning up after making dinner for myself (Maria is in London) I spotted an amazing sunset out the window. I grabbed the nearest camera – my Sony NEX-7 – and clamped a 50mm Summilux onto it. It would have taken too long to set up the big guy. I used a beanbag to steady the camera, and took a lot exposures hoping to get a good one. I got exactly one. Here it is:

On this day one year ago: On the Bund, Shanghai.

NEW YORK NEW YORK and GASPARILLA ISLAND FLORIDA – We woke up today in New York, boarded a morning flight to Ft. Myer Florida, arrived there and drove to Gasparilla Island in time to be on the beach in the late afternoon. There is a lot of Florida that we don’t much care for but a 1980 legislation has protected Gasparilla from high density development – it’s like Nantucket with palm trees. I took my Sony Nex-7 and a selection of Leica lenses. Here is sunrise in New York (taken with a 135mm APO-Telyt lens) and a sunset on Gasparilla (taken with a 24mm Summilux lens).
