WARREN CONNECTICUT – We’re here for the three day Presidnts Day weekend, pretty much snowed in. Very high winds and low temperatures bring with wind chill down to -20 degrees F. Basil the Norwich Terrier refuses to step out of the house so we have to make an accommodation for him in the garage. There is a landscape out there, but photographing it is an unappealing process. I did nonetheless manage a few images of windswept landscape.

On this day five years ago (day 123): Icy sunrise. We seem to have a theme here in rural northwestern Connecticut in mid-February.

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.

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.

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.
