NORTHVILLE CONNECTICUT – Feeling like shooting some real man-influenced landscape today. Got this from the parking lot in a local market.

i always pause on December 7, Pearl Harbor Day. Probably because of my almost four years in the Marine Corps; the Pacific war was our war; we were taught the island campaigns in great detail, one foot of bloody sand at a time.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I’m dreaming of a white Thanksgiving, just like the ones we used to know . . . .

Here we are after about a foot of snow in the past day. This is completely lovely. We managed some snowshoeing around our other activities which consisted mainly of eating and cooking.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I took a break from meeting preparation to take a walk with my Leica Monochrom and 90 mm Elmarit lens. I ended up doing a lot of stitches – the lens was a bit long for most of the subjects that I saw. The example below is three frames stitched.

KENT and WARREN CONNECTICUT – I’m continuing to experiment with my newly-repaired Leica f.95 Noctilux, shooting landscape and still life wide open, with a neutral density filter if necessary. The results are more dreamy than the hart-edged look that I’ve been cultivating for a lifetime, and thus a really good exercise for me. I’ve also included an image of Baby Victoria, our fabulous 12-month old granddaughter.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – Soe here I am experimenting with a Leica APO-Telyt 135mm lens. This lens has a legendary look and strong performance but it is the devil to use on a digital Leica M because the depth of focus is so thin and the 135mm frame in the rangefinder are small. I’ve put a 1.4x magnifier on the viewfinder and I’ve been practicing all day with focus, until I think I have it. Both images below are two frames stitched.

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.

WARREN CONNECTICUT and NEW YORK NEW YORK – A tale of good light and not so good light today. There were 15 minutes of profoundly beautiful light this afternoon in Connecticut. It was fleeting, as the sun dodged in an out of clouds. I shot what was at hand, a large tree, a mundane subject hereabout, with my Leica Luxochron 50mm lens wide open to blur the background. I ended up stitching three frames. Then later in the evening a dinner parter for a friend of long standing (not pictured here). I only shoot with available light which at dinners is often poor for portraiture. Anyway, here you go.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – In reviewing last year’s work for “on this day one year ago” I came across an image of a building obscured by a tree (scroll down and you’ll find it in Tuesday’s post). I’ve decided to do some more of these, so here is one from today.

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.

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.
