WARREN CONNECTICUT – We took a hike in Steep Rock Preserve today, admiring the fall foliage and scouting cross country ski trails. More black and white color for my daily photo blog, taken with my Leica Monochrom and 35mm Summilux FLE lens.
WASHINGTON CONNECTICUT – I went out looking for barns this morning and found a local farm with a really nice collection. Here’s a sample taken with my Alpa and 35mm Schneider XL lens. It was late for this sort of shot and the light was not noteworthy. Have to get up earlier as longer days approach.
WASHINGTON CONNECTICUT – I went out with my Alpa Max today to add to my collection of Litchfield County churches. In reviewing my progress to day I realized that I hadn’t yet taken a full frontal image of the iconic Washington Congregational Church with high res medium format gear. I wasn’t satisfied with the image that I captured so I’m not showing it today – I’ll have to go back to try again – but I caught this as a set up the tripod and did a test image to assure that all was in order.
WASHINGTON CONNECTICUT – Well here it is, Fathers Day again. This is a stupid ersatz “holiday” made up by greeting card publishers, but my public position on it is that it’s the most important holiday on the calendar. At least that’s what I tell my children.
Alexander and I celebrated by playing a round of golf. When asked if I play I can truthfully say “no”, but I do own a set of clubs and maintain a golf membership at our local club in Connecticut. Anyway, here’s Alexander doing what he does best on the golf course, which is pounding the hell out of the ball off the tee – he outdrives me by about the length of Central Park.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – I don’t usually shoot with long lenses. As I’ve noted elsewhere my most energetic work tends to be shot with wide angle or very wide angle lenses. But having a Panasonic GH2 and a 200mm-600mm equivalent lens has encouraged me experiment a bit with telephotos. Here’s the view from a friend’s building site over looking Lake Waramaug and Hopkins Vineyard.
