WASHINGTON CONNECTICUT – We’ve got a new mechanic for our old boat. Our 1952 wooden Chris Craft takes a fair amount of care to keep running. Here are some images around our new guy’s place.

On this day three years ago: Maasai Market. Kenya. We were last there three years ago but aren’t tempted to go back now.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – This is the final day of my one week forced march with my now less-new 15mm Zeiss lens. Today I’m exploring the lens’s “bokeh”, the character of the out of focus portions of images. This is actually fairly difficult since with a 15mm lens not much is out of focus. So I got really close to some flowers (8 inches or so) and took advantage of the cloudy day to shoot wide open at f/2.8, with a bunch of stuff in the background. The answer: this lens has lovely, creamy Leica-style bokeh (typical of lenses from the Walter Mandler era) with gentle focus to out of focus transitions. Very nice if you can find a situation to use it.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – Summer starts to press in on me in Connecticut. The shrubs and trees are rampant and in your face, jungle-like. Hard to express visually. I got my shot for the day in our local nursery.
