MORRIS CONNECTICUT – We spent the better part of the weekend at festivities around the wedding of the daughter of old and close friends. We don’t know the bride well so I didn’t take a lot of photos. Here’s a bar. The ceremony was at Winvian, a lovely country inn here in Litchfield County.
Day 2060 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day four years ago (day 599): Chrysler. This is one of my favorite images from this project. It was take with a Hasselblad 60 meg back on a technical camera body with a very wide lens. The original was in color but I converted it to black and white early on. Click through the link and you can see the original as posted in color.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – Tonight we went to a wedding shower for some old friends. I shot mostly with my Leica Monochrom and 35mm Summichron lens – one of no fewer than 6 that I have in this focal length. Typical obsessive behavior by a Leica shooter.
Day 1,653 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
BARRYTOWN NEW YORK – We drove over here this morning (Barrytown is a few miles north of Rhinebeck and a few miles west of Red Hook) for the wedding of two friends, Bill Clegg & Van Scott. As usual at these things my shortcomings as a wedding photographer were manifest, but I did get a few images of Francesca (our daughter) and Bill. Here you go:
TODI, ON THE ROAD, AND MILAN – We started the day in Todi with brunch with the wedding party – I picked up a couple of images with my Leica M9. On the trip to Milan the M9 was in the center console of our rental car where it fired at random – I’ve been collecting “purse shots” so I’ve included one here. Finally we ended up in Milan where we’re staying with an old friend who is doing a serious job of renovating an important Bauhaus apartment building – which I shot with my M9 and 24mm Summilux.
TODI ITALY – We spent the morning in Todi; had a fabulous lunch; went shopping in a factory outlet; connected with the wedding celebration in the late afternoon. First an image for Todi taken with my M9 and the 24mm Summilux; then a variety of images from the wedding taken with my Sony Nex-7 (which I use in situations where I expect poor light) and 35mm Summilux.
