WARREN CONNECTICUT – So I’ve got the same “the dog ate my homework” story as yesterday, but these images look pretty good so I probably won’t have to do further edits. There is, you might say, a fair amount of snow here. My friend, John Novogrod, and I snowshoed out of our back door for a few miles each way in 36 inches of fresh snow. No trails. No snowmobile tracks. A major workout. [I actually did have a further edit adding the first image below.]

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I’m writing this in New York where we live most of the time. The images from February 15 and 16 were taken in Connecticut where we have a weekend house. I edited the February 15 and 16 images in Connecticut and somehow only brought a portion of them back to New York. This may not be the best image of the day. I’ll be back in Connecticut next weekend and will update this post if I find something better. This photo-a-day thing is very demanding in terms of having a set and consistent workflow. I’ve edited this entry to include the first two images below. I was separated from these files when I first prepared this post.
Day 1,584 of one picture a day for the rest of my life.
On this day four years ago: Field in Warren Connecticut.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – We took advantage of the snow that fell over night to strap on our snowshoes and wander out across the New England landscape, generally following snowmobile tracks. There was lovely soft light and windblown snow. As you can see from last year’s image snowshoeing isn’t an uncommon pastime here this time of year.
Day 1,578 of my daily photo blog. Without a miss.
On this day last year: Snow in Warren.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – We returned to Connecticut after our week in Antigua (and a day in New York) to find 30 inches or so of snow – much of it piled in much deeper drifts.
This is day 1,577 of my ongoing project: One photograph a day for the rest of my life.
On this day four years ago: Racquet Club in infrared.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – Forgive me. I went out on snowshoes to photograph today but it was cold. Really cold. My fingers were sufficiently cold despite my gloves that I couldn’t really operate Leica Monochrom. I came back after 20 minutes or so and only got a few images. Here we go with two frames stitched.
Day 1,563 of my daily photo blog.
On this day two years ago: Magic light in Naples Florida.
Magic light trumps banal subject
WARREN CONNECTICUT – Visually it was one of those days. It was generally cloudy, but with occasional breaks that illuminated small parts of the landscape brilliantly. There were many opportunities for good images but they were fleeting, gone in 30 seconds or less. I missed a few but finally had my Leica S2 at hand (with a 70mm lens) when sunlight struck.

On this day two years ago: Lexington Avenue. Colorized infrared.

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.
