WARREN CONNECTICUT – There was a snowfall here yesterday but not enough for cross country skiing or snowshoeing so visually I did what I could with a little bit of snow, good light and some animal tracks.
Day 1,913 of one photograph a day for the rest of my life.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – Our last day of this almost two-week break in the country. It’s gotten very, very cold here, which at this time of year is not totally unexpected. Lake Waramaug has gone from being free of ice to frozen overnight. Here it is.
Day 1,907 of one photo a day for the rest of my life.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – Let’s discuss New Year’s resolutions. I’ve made the usual ones dealing with weight and prompt response to phone calls and emails, and attention to my loved ones. Not surprisingly I’ve also resolved to continue one picture a day for the rest of my life – I actually expect better compliance with this one than with some of the others.
Exactly a year ago a resolved to make a concerted effort to expand my audience online. The progress that I’ve made during the year has been immensely satisfying. Thanks to all of you for your continuing support and interest in this project.
Despite the good intentions no great insights today from a photographic perspective.
Day 1,904 of a picture a day for the rest of my life.
On this day three years ago (day 808): Taos Mountain. Need I say that this was cold?
WARREN CONNECTICUT – New Years Eve. We’re planning a quiet evening at home tonight, a relief given the high level of activity around here since before Christmas, so no pictures of drunken revelers today.
Every morning I load a card into my camera, format it, put a freshly charged battery in and then check it by taking a shot of my feet or whatever else is around to make sure that the camera’s settings are all inbounds. That way I know that I’m ready to shoot for the rest of the day. When I deviate from this routine I get into to trouble. Sometimes the random morning test shot its pretty good. Here’s the rug in my study here. Later in the day ruins somewhere near the town line between Morris and Warren, CT; there light was really dull so nothing of great interest here.
Day 1,903 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day two years ago (day 1,173): Mack. I’ve rethought the crop on this one. I shot with a Rollei 2.8F for many years, then a Hasselblad 501. Both have square frames, so I often see things as squares. Two years ago I put this image up uncopped. Today I’ve cropped it square.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – This was a productive day of shooting around Warren and New Preston. Most of our family members have departed so it’s a bit quieter. Still shooting my Leica Monochrom and antique Carl Zeiss lens.
Day 1,902 of one photo every day for the rest of my life.
December 30 has been a productive date for me so I’ve had trouble choosing a legacy photo. In the end I went with last year (day 1,537): Aleksandra .
WARREN CONNECTICUT – You may have noticed that its been a while since I posted an urban image here. That’s because we came up to Connecticut on December 24, 2014; we’re staying here through January 4. This is what my life would look like if we moved to Connecticut full time. Note the prominence of local Congregational meeting houses. This part of Connecticut really is New England, and these structures dominate town greens.
Day 1,901 of one photo every day for the rest of my life.
On this day two years ago (day 1,170): Litchfield. Three frames stitched, using a vintage 1954 Dual Range Summicron lens.
