WASHINGTON CONNECTICUT – Apologies for the length of this post. A persistent ground fog this morning gave me an opportunity to do some of the best imaging that I’ve done for a while – first with my drone at sunrise in Washington CT, and latter with my Leica Monochrom in Warren CT.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I took a walk today in a neighbor’s woods where he stores disused farm equipment. Shot with my Sony A7rii and my Leica f.95 Noctilux lens (used wide open in this image), which results in characteristic edgy bokeh. Converted to black and white with my own formula, an attempt to match film response. The Nocti is actually easier to focus on the Sony than it is on a Leica body.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I’ve discussed before my struggles trying to render the Eastern deciduous landscape. Today I spent a few hours wandering through the woods with a camera, shooting handheld bracketed shots to turn into HDR images. I shot with my Sony a7rii. Interestingly the dynamic range of the Sony is sufficiently wide that the HDR’s offered little dynamic range advantage, and of course introduced some digital artifacts.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – today’s image is a farm stand. It really is a farm stand, actually on a farm owned by the family of our neighbors, the Tanners, since the late 18th Century. The corn is freshly picked within the hour, which make a huge difference. Note the honor payments system. This is a small town.
