WARREN CONNECTICUT – I had an extremely productive day with my Leica Monochrom and a 10mm Voigtlander lens. 10mm is as wide as it gets. I mean it’s really wide. It basically takes in everything that you see. It’s rectilinear (ass opposed to a fish-eye) which means that straight lines appear straight, but the size and shape of objects near the edge of the frame are distorted. It’s a handful to handle because it has to be absolutely level and orthogonal – otherwise the wide angle distortion produces weird images.

Day 2,727 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I shot on the East side in Midtown today in intermittent heavy rain. Much better conditions for photography than the High dull skies that we’ve had for the past few days. Shot with my Leica Monochrom and 28mm Summaron Lens from 1955.

Day 2,720 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

On this day four years ago (day 1,259): Foley Square. Here’s a classical statue behind 60 Centre Street bearing a shield with the arms of the State of New York, looking sad and thoroughly defeated. I’ve always wondered how this got there.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – An OK day on the street in our neighborhood. There were major deposits of dirty snow. All images shot with my Leica Monochrom and 28mm lens from 1955. The second and third images are stitches.

Day 2,715 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I used the opportunity presented by a good sunset today to photograph a friend’s house from its best angle, but an angle that is impossible from the ground. This is an example of a “drone as cherry-picker” image. The second image is a drone’s eye view of a barn, actually in Washington Connecticut.
