NEW YORK NEW YORK and WARREN CONNECTICUT – Still shooting with my Leica Monochrom and 24mm Summilux lens. I seem to be in the zone on my drive this morning from New York to Warren CT.
Day 1,724 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
Warren back road
On this day two years ago (day 994): Milan.
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.
Another look up
On this day two years ago (day 938): Outside the ICP. Tree frames stitched.
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.
Day 1,655 of one photo every day for the rest of my life.
On this day four years ago (day 194): Pen Gala.

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.
Day 1,644 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day one year ago (day 1,279): Portrait.
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 three years ago (day 544): Citicorp Center straight up.
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.
Out my window
WARREN CONNECTICUT – I made foggy day images today. I’ve done this before but that’s only because we have a lot of foggy days here. These are taken with my Leica S2 medium format camera with a 70mm lens. Three frames stitched in Photoshop.
Day 1,548 of this ongoing project to take one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day one year ago: grim. Another poor day.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – Boxing Day. A major holiday in England but not here. We’re having a Boxing Day party nonetheless for fifty or so people, so my day is packed with preparations. I don’t usually photograph at parties that we give because it interferes with interacting with guests. I caught this on the road to our house with my Leica Moncochrom and 50mm Noctilux lens.
On this day last year: Blizzard. Nice images from a year ago taken with my Monochrom and 18mm Leica SEM lens.
