MAHESHWAR INDIA – Arrived at last. This begins my 2018 exploration of India. For the next few weeks, some days will actually be galleries because it hard to edit down to a few “best” images without more distance. This is the first day of the Indian Classical music festival at the Ahilya Fort. on the Narnada River and attending an Indian classical music festival. “Classical” music here doesn’t mean Brahms: it’s traditional music played on a sitar, tabla and so on.
Day 3048 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day three years ago (day 1952 of one photo every day): 432 Park Avenue
MAUI HAWAII – We had a great morning exploring a flee market here to day. We bought an “antique” Trader Vic’s mai tai mug (all Trader Vic’s stuff it turns out is collectable), a couple of dresses, various presents, and for me . . . three vintage silk Tommy Bahama shirts. Great fun.
Day 2850 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
MID PACIFIC OCEAN – This is a long travel day – a 13 hour flight from New York to Maui via Honolulu. My images are really confined to the interior of the airplane. So here is a hula dancer (probably from the 1940s) shown on a loop on the plane’s video. She appears to be in a large, colonial style room with an older man playing a grand piano.
BOSTON MASSACHUSETTS – I’m here for meetings and my annual pilgrimage to Fenway Park (the Red Sox v. the Blue Jays). Being from New York I’m not a Red Sox fan, but Fenway is nonetheless a lot of fun. I got desperate at one point so I shot a drain in a sink just to have an image for the day. At Fenway I used the panorama feature on the phone and cut the panos back in post. The image below was shot in one of several rain delays.
Day 2,833 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
Pn this day last year (day 2,468): Arles. Continuing the sink theme.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – I spent today preparing baby back ribs for cooking sous vide (they will be finished on a Green Egg in Connecticut on Thursday). The first steps are to remove the membrane, apply a rub to impart BBQ flavor, and vacuum pack the ribs to let them “marinate” in the fridge for 24 hours – the but also acts as a dry brine.
Day 2,811 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
