KENT CONNECTICUT – We took a hike today in Macedonia State Park outside of this village. I’m shooting very wide, with a 15mm Carl Zeiss lens on my Leica Monochrom. The shots from the early part of the hike are actually with my f.95 Noctilus lens fitted with a neutral density filter which permits shooting in daylight at f.95. In other words a day of shooting with heavy, extreme equipment.
Day 2229 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – I love this time of year here. The color is gone. The landscape is buttoned down for the winter with the soft perennials cut back to the earth and leaves pilled making leaf mulch for future use. It feels thrifty and fugal. The view is monochrome, which resonates with my way of seeing. The deciduous forrest has become transparent, opening sight lines.
Day 2222 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life. One of the magical-seeming numbers. Day 2222 didn’t feel different that any other.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – I got some good light on the fall foliage, which as usual is reproduced here in black and white because I shoot in black and white – with my Leica Monochrom camera and the wonderful Carl Zeiss 15mm ZM lens.
Day 2194 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day five years ago (day 369): City Island cottage in Halloween dress.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – Still shooting with my Sony 7Rm2 and an uncoated Carl Zeiss 5cm Sonnar lens from 1936. I’ve shot this tree before but it’s completely different through this lens, which produces transparent shadows but with good local contrast. The overall look amazes me. Autumn 2015 in living black and white.
Day 2180 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day two years ago (day 1450): Freedom Tower captured with my Leica Monochrom.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – A couple of things. First, as I write this I’m actually in Tokyo, soon moving on to Hong Kong. My posts may be a bit delayed but I’ll catch up when I get back to New York next week.
Second, Basil the Norwich Terrier made it into today’s image but it really isn’t a picture of him, so I’m not violating my “no pictures of pets or cute kids” rule.
Day 2151 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
