WASHINGTON DC – I spent my day on foot here with drab, uninspiring light. Images are from the World War II Memorial on the Mall. Architecture in the Capital ranges from really good Beaux Arts to academic looking Beaux Arts. The WWII memorial is in the latter category.
Day 2,759 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
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.
