WARREN CONNECTICUT – We used to call unseasonably warm periods in the early Fall “Indian Summer” – I’m not certain what we call them now but we’re having one. This was an opportunity to shoot truly pedestrian scenes in lovely light. Also . . . our six-year-old orchard is finally bearing more apples than we can possibly eat. Images shot with my Leica Monochrom and a 50mm Summicron V.IV lens.

Day 2,899 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

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.

Day 2,875 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

On this day last year (day 2,505): Farm fresh eggs.
